My personal choice: Eee PC

actually 299 on newegg right now!..i was actually pondering getting one!

basically my thinking comes down to this..if you can't carry around a slightly heavier laptop with more features than an Air, you are a big wuss in my book ;-)....I know that an Eee PC is basically just for internet, therefore it's only 299 bucks...can't say the same for that darn Steve Jobs' little Air Faerie...lol....im saying all of this sarcastically and in good fun...i don't need to start a fanboy war!

If the air was a LITTLE cheaper with a few more features, I'd be totally down for it. Two major pluses IMO are the battery life and the weight. Honestly, I carry quite a few books and projects around for my business/econ classes...It'd be quite a godsend if I could carry a laptop WITHOUT the charger, and without that much bulk in my backpack/briefcase.

Shoot, I could fit the laptop in my briefcase and it'd probably be thinner than my folders!
