I can't tell you which to chose, but I can tell you what I would like to get

I like Asus for their battery life mostly. I've heard that the new Eeepc
1201N <>has
a dual core Intel Atom 330 2/3 GB of RAM and I especially like the
nVidia ION graphics card (I think it was supposed to be available for
purchase in December, 2009 or something like that). But I don't own one so I
cannot tell you my impressions on it.
