Can load it with Ubuntu as well.


Kinda weird how it is cheap as fuck. But for $400 I might give it a shot. Wonder if the keyboard would be uncomfortably small though. But might be a good alternative to a mobile GPS unit in a car.

so wait. if you buy a laptop with no CDROM, and it goes BSoD, what do you do?

This. The whole idea of super small laptops has been out for a while. The Eee is major old. But don't expect to run anything on it besides word processors and the internet. It'd do better with Linux than any Windows.

(The Eee costs $249.99 here)

Hope your mobo allows boot from USB

Netbooks are really old news.

Acer Aspire one, Asus EEE, Asus N10, The dell, MSI wind, etc.

The n10 is your best bet, with the small resolution and 9300mGS you could more than likely play darkfall on it. ;]

Edit: The n10J has the dedicated graphics.
