ASUS makes good stuff, but I wouldn't get a laptop with a Pentium processor. Try to look for something with an i3. If your budget is absolutely maxed out at around $300 though, that's not a bad deal.

The B960 isn't bad, it's a Sandy Bridge Pentium. If you don't need the extra performance, it's a good deal.

If you want good battery life at that pricepoint the only option is a netbook.
