Just me.

Netbook running Linux

I really want to get a netbook (think very, very, very small laptop). And for various reasons, it’s important to me that it run Linux. Right now, I’m looking at the Asus Eee PC 900 as it costs under $450, has 1GB of RAM, runs Linux (Xandros, though I’m curious how easy it is to run other distros on it), and uses a 20GB solid-state disk. This makes the IO really fast, though speed will never be a major consideration for this sort of device.

But any other suggestions are welcome. I don’t expect to actually buy anything for a couple of weeks, unless I just see something that I can’t miss.
