    Hi everyone,

    considering purchasing one of these units, and thinking about the MAC OSX or XP or Ultra Lite Vista install.......and I am wondering with Wireless On what I can expect out of my battery life in both 6 cell or 3 cell versions...going to be one of the 80gb or 120gb versions......

    Also, how hard realistically is the RAM/Wireless card upgrade.....I have been a PC tinkerer for year, but not much experience breaking laptops...lol

    I tried searching but couln't find much other than just I did xxx, I did xxx...
    Want a real world perspective....

    Thanks
    dave

    Using vista on mine, took around 3,5GB fresh. Runs for around 2 hours, maybe less (not using a very power-conservative plan).

    Installing RAM isn't too hard, with your experience it shouldn't be a problem. I've never worked inside a laptop before and the only problem I had was that I tried puching the RAM straight in, while it seems like it's supposed to go in at an angle and then be "bent" down (unlike on a stationary).

    Check out tnkgrl's videos (Google for them). They show quite well how to take the One apart.
