Heat and Noise:
This is the coolest CPU I have ever seen. Even tough the fan is almost always on you have to put you ear on the air exhaust to hear it when the CPU runs at 800 MHz. If you run CPU intensive applications the fan becomes a very little louder, but still it`s not louder than typing on keyboard. It`s not annoying even in an absolutely silent room.
Here comes to play the entire system, not just the CPU. This lappy comes with a 6 cell 4000 mAh battery so don`t go on long journes with it. Running Boinc Manager which uses the CPU 100 % I get some 70~80 mins., watching DVD 2h~2h15min.; watching divx from HDD 2h20min.;just iddle screen brightnes at 50 % makes 3h.
Got one of them acer's and i ran vista premium and it was brilliant. i wonder if i got the x2 5102 aspire if it makes a bigger difference or not. still am happy with it /wub.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":wub:" border="0" alt="wub.gif" />
