    MSI's wind, HP's mini-note and newer generation of EEE are priced higher at ~$500-600 currently, but might drop further when facing newcomers.

    PS. Im extremely interested in S10 and Aspire One, just wait and see how dell's stuff stack up against them.

    I'm still mulling over a netbook choice, and I hadn't even heard of the aspire one. Thanks for the heads up.
