    uni, surfing on the move, i wanna be able to just chuck it in my bag the size and weight is a key factor thats why im not looking for a full size laptop

    If its main usage is for surfing and msn etc i would recommend the 701 4g. Its ultra portable 7" screen etc.

    only thing is doesnt that come with some linux operating system or no operating system? and 4gb?? wud wanna have some programs mainly office which takes around a gig now...that and arnt the batterys much better on the new models?

    ahh if your gona use office then the 1000 is probably better. I dont know much about the 1000/h

    Although the 701 does come with open office already implented in the linux o/s

    The 1000 uses a solid state drive, the 1000H uses a 1.8" or 2.5" hard drive.

    The 4G is availible in both linux and windows versions.

    I took my 4G to a week long residential course at nottingham university recently, I did find the battery ran out quite a lot.

    The best model at the moment seems to be the 901. It's got the good battery life and bluetooth but is more compact than the 1000/1000H.

    Personally I'd stick with the Linux version if it comes with all the programs you want (it'll do MSN and has firefox and OpenOffice). I haven't tried the windows version but I did try the windows-like full desktop on my 4G and the taskbars and similar seemed a bit small (they'll be the same size on the 901 since it's got higher resolution as well as a bigger screen). Plus the Linux version comes with more storage. Windows is more flexible though.

    Best price for the 901 please?
