    I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. I really want an eee pc 901 (the one with 8 hours of battery life) but I'd also like some great sennheiser pxc 350 or 450 headphones (noise cancelling ones). I can only get one. My idea behind teh netbook is that i kinda need a laptop thats cheap to complement my nice and dated iMac (2.16ghz white). I dunno what I'd use it for, maybe university next year although I really am a fan of paper. The headphones I'd liek because I originally wanted some great noise cancelling headphones but only got some mediocre ones in the on ear pxc 250's i was given by my parents. advice please :) Maybe some otehr options?

    I'd get the headphones. Depends on what you "need".

    You should wait until next year when AMD offers their Athlon-based "netbook" platform which operates in the same power envelope as the Atom platform just by using an efficient chipset instead of a low-power CPU.
