Default Asus Eee

I'm thinking about picking up a ASUS Eee for a travel laptop. I have a primary HP badass laptop but it's a 17" 8.5lb beast. I'm thinking the 900HA is a good mix for what I would like. I'm a forum whore and lurked around the Eee forums a bit and they all seemed to think that the 900 series was very good.

For $300 I can have a good system to go to Cafe's/Restaurants/Classes/Cabin and be able to do so without lugging around my HP.

What are some pointers to the mini laptops?

Opinions you might have?

TIA

I've heard that the EEE 901 has a much better battery life than the EEE 900.


I reccomended the 901 to my Aunty, and she loves it!

As a friend of mine would say "I'm huslin on a budget, pimpin"

I'd like to stay around $300. 901's are $150 more.

There are plenty of models to choose from. Any manufacturer with a decent reputation should have a decent netbook to offer. I would personally look at these models.

Dell Inspiron Mini 9


HP Mini 1000

Ah, I see. In that case, the 900HA is proberbly right for you!

There are other manufactures of netbooks aswell, though. Take a look at the Dell Inspiron Mini line, and also the MSI Wind

RAM is disgustingly cheap for these computers!

I've looked at the acer setups, and am in the process of comparing them to the ASUS model. I've had two Acer computers and they were dog butt slow...
