If you're like us, chances are you want a netbook. And although there are plenty of netbook deals to go around (see our netbook DealWatch for an overview), there's a batch of new netbooks that just entered the retail space. To help with your purchasing decision, we compared some of the newest models to their current counterparts to see if the revisions are worth the extra cost.

However, its biggest advantage is its battery life. The netbook uses ASUS's Super Hybrid Engine software to squeeze out a rated (but impressive) 10.5 hours of battery life. For travelers, the extra battery power might be worth the cost to upgrade. Otherwise, Starbucks surfers can easily get by with the 1000HA and use the extra $80 on more lattes.
