Default Need advice on Netbooks

So I'm looking at net book models. I'm a college student so I need something portable, light, and very good battery life. I'll mostly be writing papers, taking notes, playing music, watch a movie once and a while, and browse the internet. I travel often so portablity is a huge plus. I have another computer at home for higher preformence needs.

I've been mostly looking at ASUS Eee models. I was looking at the 1000HE model, but then they came out with the 'Sea Shell' models. Now I'm looking at the 1101HA or the 1008HA. I'm leaning towards the 1101A because of the slightly larger screen. However I'm concerned with it not being "AS" portable as the the smaller 10 in screen.

Comments or advice? Thanks guys!

I've heard some good things about the HP Mini, Dell Mini 10, and the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2.

I'd personally go with the Lenovo based on that review. If you have a chance, be sure to try it in person to make sure you're accustomed to the keyboard.

I still say an Eee in this case. They have a few HD based models.

It just seems that ASUS is the leader in Netbook technology.

Well, I wouldn't say that.
