The Dell mini is really nice and haves a low price sticker.  My wife
loves her Mini 9 with Ubuntu.  I don't think the Mini 9 is sold anymore,
but the Mini 10 is slightly larger and just as affordable.

If you want quality I would suggest to stay away from the low priced
Inspiron line.  I have the Inspiron 1525 and it is crap.  The USB ports
are so close together that I can only use two of them and the computer
constantly over heats.
