Mini notebooks available NOW


Want to get one of those MSI Wind type mini notebooks and I know the market is growing but......I would like to get one by this weekend to take on a trip next week.

Can you folks in the know advise what is available right now, preferably with fast delivery.

Looks like I may be limited to either the Advent or eee.

Personally find the eee kinda ugly.

Any I have overlooked and do you think the Advent would arrive before the weekend if ordered today?

Can live with Linux just as easily as Windows so the OS isn't an issue.

have a look atthe asus 12" one posted from ebuyer. It is a bit dearer, but much more powerful and versatile, It has a DVD drive built in and a 12" screen which is bigger than the 10" on the ee and not that big to be a huge piece of kit. Plus 2 Gb Ram and a decent HD, and if you order today get it tomorrow!! Really I'd go for that anyday! And its light, 1.9kgs

Thanks but can't justify that much expense for a "knockabout at work" browsing machine.

I already have my ancient 14" Vaio but it's weight is cumbersome....but I may make do til after my trip and let the Netbook market settle before buying

The eee 701, eee 900, HP2133, and the advent are the only ones availible now as far as I know.
