Default Re: Please recommend a netbook.....

This is my netbook btw, I love it since it's slightly larger than your average netbook (smarter than the average bear! sorry), so it's got a nice 1366 x 768 screen and near-full-size keyboard. Pretty robust too, I've stood on several times with all my weight (while it's on) and it hasn't perturbed it at all. And just as light as your average netbook. Plays 720p video fine, if you download it and play it in WMP (but not VLC).
I'm running Windows 7 HP on it, runs very smoothly if you take care of it maintenance-wise.

Only problem is that Linux runs crap on it since the GMA500 GPU is the only intel-integrated without Linux drivers :|

Well, I'm going upstairs with my netbook, then I decide I need the toilet (which is downstairs). I put the netbook down on the stairs, take a whiz, then head upstairs, forgetting I've left my netbook there. I'm the sort to throw/run myself up stairs, so it tends to be a lot of pressure. But yeah, I end up standing on it.
