    1000h looks like a winner to me. what about the acer one, i know its only 8.9", but it packs in the same features for cheaper (+ a bigger hard drive)

    Pros:
    - great specs, cheaper than 1000H
    - chasis is sexy
    - many says that it has the best screen of all netbooks

    Cons:
    - it's Acer
    - wifi problems
    - to upgrade ram, you have to dismantle everything

    I hate Acer,... but I would admit it though that it's the best deal if you are on a budget

    even with disk drive and RAM upgrades, it's a great deal

    Dell Mini = Intel Atom, 1GB RAM (max 2GB), 16GB SSD, 4-Cell battery, 1.3 megapixel camera, 8.9" screen = $475

    Acer Aspire One = Intel Atom, 1GB RAM (max 1.5GB), 160GB HDD, 6-Cell battery, 1.3 megapixel camera, 8.9" screen = $399

    EEE PC 1000H = Intel Atom, 1GB RAM (max 2GB), 160GB HDD, 6-Cell battery, 1.3 megapixel camera, 10" screen = $479.99

    MSI Wind = Intel Atom, 1GB RAM (max 2GB), 120GB HDD, 6-Cell battery, 1.3 megapixel camera, 10" screen = $499.99

    imo, 1000H would be the better buy at the $470+ price.

    I think the Aspire one has a 2GB limit on RAM as well. Because all the Netbooks with atoms use the same chipset.

    the Acer comes with 1x512MB onboard ram (soldered to the board) + 1x512MB ram stick. obviously, you can only upgrade the stick.

    which is fuckin ghey btw

    SSD uses less power than ATA/IDE, it's smaller, it weighs less, and it creates less heat.. at the expense of cost and storage space. But seriously, 16GB should be more than enough storage space for a mini laptop.

    And IMO the Dell LOOKS the best.

    the thing is,... other netbooks also have SSD versions and are still cheaper.
    e.g. EEEPC w/ 16GB SSD is like $349, the Aspire One w/ 8GB SSD model is like $330.

    and trust me dude, these OEM SSDs are epic fail.
    Dell used those infamous cheap ass and slow Intel SSDs.

    specs wise, you should be looking at the 900 or 901, which is 8.9"

    ahh I didn't realize the 9" was only $350, that's pretty cool.

    I'm still waiting for an even more slimmed-down mini laptop

    all I need for wired connections is one USB port and the power port. everything else is just adding cost, power consumption, wasted space, and weight.

    Acer one would be the BEST choice if it wasn't for the whiney fan

    I'm planning to buy one some time next year for college use. Hopefully, they get the fan fixed

    I have an Acer 15.4" and the only problem I had was a busted nvidia gfx card in the 3 years I owned it (typing from it right now)

    MSI wind can run OS X with almost everything working, including sound. So that's a plus

    The 1000h has tons of aftermaket mod guides etc and it's a nice machine, but IMO the dell has the best build feel.

    sweet, i would get the msi wind and load it up with osx.

    i bet the 1000h will be able to run osx soon, if not already

    10" screen is getting kinda big to be an ultraportable, though.

    Oh, and no SSD ftl.

    i agree that 10" is a little big, thats why the acer is nearly perfect, other than being an acer

    though they may be awesome on battery life and bump resistant...those SSDs are slow.

    i would buy the 1000h, msi wind, or the acer with the current standard hard drive...then when prices come down, replace it with a decent SSD
