If you can wait until the fall - or perhaps towards Christmas - there will be a whole new 
generation of netbooks running on ARM processors. They have the advantage of thinner, lighter, 
cooler, longer battery life (between 8-15 hours) and will be sold running Linux (and other 
non-Microsoft OS's).

Forgot to say that ARM has a special working relationship with Ubuntu.

Do a Google search ......
