I just wanted to follow up. I purchased a Asus Netbook from Tiger Direct for $329. It has a 10.1" backlit screen, 1.6Ghz Atom N270 processor, 1GB DDR, 160GB hard drive, Windows XP Home, WiFi, Wireless b/g/n, Bluetooth and the extended 6-cell (6 hour+ battery). It came without any real spamware installed which was nice. I installed Avira Antivirus (running) and ZoneAlarm (running). It's downloaded about 3 waves of updates and I downloaded and installed the trial version of SAM Party DJ 4 and it runs flawlessly.
Hope this info helps. It will be nice to carry around and take requests.
