Possibly the best news here is that Asus doesn’t appear to be launching different versions of these laptops on different sides of the Atlantic. When the company introduced the Acer Aspire Timeline 1810 with Windows Vista in Europe a few months ago, the company shortened the battery life and called it the Acer Aspire 1410 in the US.

Of course, if you don’t need the extended battery life, dual core processor, extra RAM and hard disk space and Windows 7, you can still pick up an Acer Aspire 1410 with Windows Vista for about $430.

  1. Hmm, the appeal of the 1410 was its bang-for-your-buck: you were getting above-netbook specs in a netbook form factor for the same or less as netbooks with lower specs. The 1410 already comes with Win7 HP, and I’m assuming that you can get this battery for the 1410 (since, AFAIK, they’re the same body/formfactor).

    Dual-core in a “netbook” is nice, but not necessary, not for something that is going to be used as a netbook.

    Been waiting on the price of the 1410 to come down, so I might just pick one of those up, or maybe an HP Mini 311. The folks at InsanelyMac are close to getting OS X running perfectly on it.

  2. So the differences between the two versions is the amount of RAM abd a different processor. How much “better” is the 7300 dual core over the 4100 dual core? Is it more of a multitasking difference?

    1. The differences in the 2 processors are:

      SU7300 – 3MB L2-Cache, intel VT
      SU4100 – 2MB L2-Cache, no intel VT

      intel VT helps with Virtualisation, so running programs like VMWare, VirtualPC and the likes will greatly benefit from having the SU7300 over the SU 4100.
      Windows7’s own ‘Virtual Windows XP Mode’ will not work without a VT enabled CPU at all.

      the 1MB Cache difference shouldn’t be to noticeable since mainly 3D-Games or Video/Photo/Audio Editing/Encoding will profit from it, and since the CPU is a little underpowered for those kind of tasks as it is, you will be able to measure but not feel any difference here at all.
