    Okay, I'm officially looking for a netbook and they seem to be really popular around here so I figured I'd enlist you guys for some advice.

    Here is what I intend to use it for:
    Console Access
    RDP
    Web Browsing
    * More battery life the better
    * Lighter the better
    * Would prefer screen take up entire foot print rather than large border

    Do you guys have any suggestions? It seems that Asus makes a nice product but the screen border is fairly large. I'd really prefer something that makes use of the entire footprint.

    The Dell Mini's seem nice but definitely have a premium increase to the cost. In terms of OS I'll probably dual boot Ubuntu and XP Pro. So realistically I can't even run more than 2gigs of ram so that requirement isn't really there to go beyond that.

    If I have like, 60 gigs of HD space I'd probably be happy. 32 gigs in some of the solid state drives is just way too small for me.

    Anyways, looking forward to suggestions.

    ps - an Atom processor would be neat so I could boot OSX too.
