The netbook marketplace is a completely different place to where it was in late 2007 when the EEEPC was first released by Asus. A wide range of netbooks are now available, mostly using the same tried-and-tested Atom CPU. Netbooks differentiate themselves based on their RAM, Hard Drive space, LCD size and operating system.
There are some nice netbooks out there, but in my opinion the best looking one is the latest incarnation of the EEEPC; the 1008.
Priced at just over £ 300 - they are pretty much the best on the market at the moment.
