Just requested a mobile broadband deal, now this one is requesting what small laptops the best. I've seen the eeepc but whats its rival? Any deals? I'll be using mobile broadband with it. Currently have a macbook but I think its a bit big to be carrying around.

Hmmm, how long is a piece of string? You'll likely get a different answer from everybody. My personal choice for a 'netbook' would be the Acer Aspire One with 1gb of RAM and the 160gb hard drive. However, you may like to check out the Samswung range too. If you can get hold of the new edition of Custom PC magazine they have a mini review of these netbooks but it is not an exhaustive review...

Cheers I'll go get that magazine. I was wondering if theres much of a difference in speed etc? I see the eeepc s101 is like £500 compared with some of the lower models which are far cheaper.. Can't understand such huge jumps in prices when these arent really for playing games on?

Last weeks gadget show said the Samsung was the best 10" notebook on the market and they are not normally wrong, as I have a plethora of electronic wizardry on their recommendation and I’ve not had a duffer yet

I got a Packard Bell EasyNote BG45-U-300 at Christmas and apart from a CPU fan that is a little loud at times, I cant think why they discontinued it

The eee PC S101 is the 'fashion' model and is exceptionally thin, which accounts for it's high price. The top of the range technically are things like the 901 and 1002HE.

Personally I own an original eee 701 and I'd have said it was too big and heavy so I'd either stick with a 9" one like the eee 901 (I think that's the only 9" eee with a decent battery), or go for a 12" netbook like the dell mini 12 for the extra comfort, the 10" ones seem rather pointless to me.

The Samsung NC10 gets my vote because they have a decent battery life. Netbooks are meant for people on the move and many of the reviews of the Asus mention a poor battery life.

I just have a downer on Samsung products because everything I have bought from them has gone wrong. This goes back nearly 14 years to my first PC upgrade when I bought a bigger Samsung drive. I may have just had bad luck where Samsung is concerned but I have herd of others having similar problems.

What? Asus were the first people to bring out a netbook with a long lasting battery and as far as I know they currently make the netbook with the longest battery life the 1000HE. Of course, the eee range is rather wide and some of the older or cheaper models do come with lower capacity batteries that can only manage three hours, but just don't buy those models if you want long battery life.

Ah, I meant to say Acer. Careless of me :-)

I have an asus eee PC and a samsung nc10, I can safely say that the nc10 is the best netbook going. the one i have takes a sim card, for mobile broadband which makes it awesome.

Where do you buy a sim card without having to buy the dongle? I had a look recently for a bigger laptop but couldn't see anywhere.
