Yesterday, Myer got 10%off for all MyerOne members. So, I went to there checking any good deal. I found HP Mini 1001 are discounted to $549. After 10% off, that is under $500. And it got 80GB Hard Disk, 1GB Ram and Intel Atom 1.6Ghz. That got lower specifications than Dell Latitude 2100. But the price is more $100 lower. I bought that as my first netbook.
It got a glossy screen ( 10.1", LED backlighted, 1024X600 ) and the keyboard is quite comfort.
One USB, RJ-45, Mic and Headphone jack and powder cord
The 2nd USB, MMC and SD Card Reader
A stylish black cover.
P.S. it cames with Windows XP Home SP3. I have reimage it to Ubuntu Remix 9.04. I will write a post about that tomorrow.
Dell Latitude 2100 seems to be more like a low-cost business laptop than a netbook. Moreover, for linux option, that is a standard Ubuntu 8.1 rather than a Ubuntu Remix.It doesn't sounds very "Notebook". But it got notebook features. Light-weight! It is only 1.3kg. Moreover, the color options are available as well.
I am thinking that is a better option for myself than Dell-mini. Becuase it may has RAM up to 2GB and Harddisk to 250GB. Moreover,it got a touch screen option(But it costs AUD$101 more, I won't go for this). This sounds attractive!
