Netbook suggestions?

Well, I ended up getting the Gateway.  Wen I went to Best Buy they had three
on the shelf for me to choose from.  One was a Toshiba, one a HP, and one a
Gateway LT2802u.  The Toshiba was the one that I had been eyeing
online...But the Gateway sold me on the fact that it was a little lighter, a
little smaller (keeping the same 10.1" screen), and the biggest is the shift
key is a longer rectangular form rather then the others that had a smaller
square key.  I don't have a lot of experience typing on these small
keyboards other then my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 which I bought the Samsung
keyboard dock and the shift key is my most difficult to hit.  I put natty on
it last night and it works great.

Hopefully I made a good choice.  I was a little learey as I have not
forgotten Gateway's past financial problems.  I did not want to buy the HP
because their value is tanking over questionable business decisions.

Anyone with any thoughts?  Should I take it back?
