I need a netbook. I'm tired of carrying my macbook around (13" but still heavy
)

what's a good cheap one? I would want something to dick around online on and occasionally take notes/type things. I'd like it to be aesthetically pleasing
also cheap

Seconding the ASUS EEE, I have one from a few years ago in white and it's solid.

probably. they come with things like bluetooth, etc that are helpful. If I were you I'd wait until Google Chrome OS comes out...if its not too long of a wait. depends if you like windows or not. but chrome might be a lot faster.

if you sign up for slick deals and set up a deal alert for netbooks you will find nice dells or lenovos (some may be refurbs) for around $200.

I'd wait until AMD releases the much more powerful Bobcat/Brazos APU's for use in netbooks. Blows the Atoms away, even the dual cores with Ion GPU.

AMD should dominate the netbook/ULV market over the next year.
