got a 'black friday' under $200 netbook this week. asus 1005ha (lower end model).
but as luck would have it, the lower end model has a matte screen! ha ha! the better screen comes on the low end model. nice.
3 cell batt but I plan to get a 2nd one and so its not a show stopper.
but being under $200 was a nice motivator for me.
its now running ubuntu and importing my mp3 library for MPD and usb-audio use
I think netbooks under 10 inches are wastes.. the screen and keyboard are so small you can't do anything. I have an acer aspire 1410, 11.6 inches. It's as close to a netbook as you can get without it being a netbook, yet it performs much better and weighs as little as one and is as portable as one (same size as a sheet of printer paper). Mine currently runs vista just fine with 2gb ram and core 2 solo, and the new ones run even more efficiently with windows 7 with core 2 duo processors..
