    which of these?

    LENOVO IdeaPad S12
    ACER Aspire One 751
    Dell Inspiron Mini 12
    Samsung NC20
    I think in comparison to each other, the Acer seems to have a relatively poor battery life whereas the Samsung has a very good battery life...

    The LENOVO IdeaPad is relatively new and it looks really good....

    they all have their pros and cons, I'd probably go for the Samsung or the Dell but it depends what you want from the netbook...

    The Acer is relatively average in its battery life, however it's build isn't great...
    If you want the longest battery life go for something like the Eee PC 1000HE, which is cheaper than the Acer and Asus claim it has a battery life of 9 hours, it's probably less than that but not by much...
    But if you don't want to go for something like the Eee PC, then the Samsung would probably work well, comes with 6 cell battery as standard as opposed to 3 cells and it looks pretty too

    yeah the Eee PC does have a 10" screen...
    Have a look at the Samsung and the Dell's specs and price and you should find it easier to decide
