Notes:

Systems with large caches will generally perform faster even though they do not have the fastest clock speed.

The larger dot pitch for the displays are easier to read.

Battery life is based on manufacturers claims, your mileage will vary.

It appears that the Compaq Aero 2100 is an oem copy of the Everex Freestyle 540.
