Anyway I know very little about laptops, but I'm finding myself needing one for various things, nothing big such as games. I'm chasing a small laptop, basically I've narrowed down a few in no order
* Dell Inspiron Mini 9
* MSI Wind U100 or the U90 which has a 80GB HDD instead of 160GB and a 3-cell battery instead of 6-cell (how big of a difference does this make?)
* Asus eeePC
* Acer Aspire One AOA110 Blue7
* Acer Aspire 5313-201G08Mi Notebook (tad big)
The last 2 are cheap and I like the sound of them :-)
Linux compatibility is a big issue for me, I don't wish to use Windows at all. Nor do I want Ubuntu :-)
So my question is, has anyone used/heard of the laptops on my list? And are there any others I should be considering? Around the $550AUD mark and small of course.
Thanks for any input!
Back to research,
The MSI Wind's sound fantastic! I'd probably opt for the U90 because of the smaller screen... But the U100 does have a 6 cell battery.
