the amount of hot air coming out of the dv2 vent when it sat idling. Hotter than any Atom models. Netbooks are unbeatable for performance/weight for everyday tasks if scrolling the tiny screen is not an issue. Bulking up is another way to go.
my old dell XPS M1210 is beginning to crap out on me and I'm looking to buy a new laptop in the next few months. looking for a small and light computer, something that will finally give my battered left shoulder a break from hauling my laptop around 7 hours a day in a bag that's already full of textbooks. I'd also like to get a little more performance out of it than a netbook, I would consider the HP dv2 but it seems like the athlon neo really doesn't do too much more than the intel atom. however I'm more inclined to sacrifice performance for portability as after two years of lugging my dell (which is already below average weight, about 4.4 pounds IIRC) along with 25+ pounds of textbooks for several hours a day I'd like to take weight off any way I can. so if the dv2 is the best way I can get better than atom performance out of a small and light laptop without spending over 1000$ then so be it.
