I'm sick of carrying my heavy 15'' Dell to university everyday so I'm looking to get a sub $500 netbook. It will just be used for email, web surfing, and word processing.
I've narrow it down to Acer A0522 and HP mini. Both have the price of $549 at BnB but I should be able to get them to beat the price at JB(?).
I'm leaning towards HP as it's got Intel's Atom N550, which is Duo Core (better than Acer's AMD I believe, no?).
What do you think?
