The range of devices available to be is, frankly, overwhelming. I have picked the current to start because it is more rugged than you'd expect a Netbook to be, it has all the standard ports including VGA out, and I think that its having a real 500GB Hd puts it into a different class.

The only thing I've found causing any slowdown is when I have many programs in several categories. If there are, say, 50 programs in Education, there can be a 2 - 3 second delay in opening a cascade window to the right and displaying the contents.
