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.
