I'd go with the mini note if you're after looks. One of the thinnest and best looking IMO. But you only get 2 usb ports and no external display port without an adapter.

Thanks very much everyone!
I loved the sound of MSI Wind too, but I've heard that the battery life is no longer than 2 hours. Is that true? Battery is an issue to me, because I travel a lot.

I have the 3 cell wind and I easily get 2+ hours of battery life with wifi on and the display at full brightness. If you are concerned about battery life I recommend getting the 6 cell version though.

The HP is nice looking but its has a slower cpu than most of the other netbooks.

While it is slower I havent noticed it, then again PCBSD is kinda light on resources.
