I'm thinking of one of the 10" ASUS eee models. I trust their hardware, generally, but I don't know a lot about netbook hardware, to be honest.

If I get one, I will get the windows model and dual boot something like DSL, because I've heard bad things about how ASUS hasn't really supported their distro - leaving most of it to the community to figure out, instead of really developing and supporting it in-house (which is bad for someone new at Linux who could use the support on occasion).

Thoughts? I'm looking at $300 or less, I think. That should get me in the neighborhood of where I want to be.

Well, the most popular (highly rated) 10" netbook is the ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1005HA !

Something I've discovered lately: The "best" model of something may not always be the right one for the job. That's why I came in to ask.

Just wondering if I need to buy a nailgun when a hammer would be more appropriate for the type of computing I want to do, so to speak.

Well, BEST in this case is a highly rated product, that's tried and tested. :blink:
Unless of course your requirements are different.
