Hi guys,

First sorry for my bad english . its not my Born Language (im from Brasil) and although i can make some sense , my grammar and syntax sucks, and i bet most 12 childes write a lot better than me.

So, im starting to save money for a mini-notebook/netbook , and doing some research for one that fits my taste...

I want something around $1200 dollars , and the best one i found until now is that new Sony P Series:

2 gig ram, 1.3 ghz, 64g SSD, GPS, Bluetooth, EV-DO , Great Resolution (1600 x 768), light (1.4 pounds), and the best battery claiming to last 8 hours.

Seems really nice, it comes with vista but i pretend to run a Linux Distro in it ( Gentoo , Maybe Backtrack installed directly instead of running from a PenD. ).

Im sure better Mini-Notebooks will be launched before i reach the 1200 dollars saving, so anyone knows a Great-To-Be-Launched-MiniNotebook or an already Great One to evolve?

Thanks,

Okami.

The HP 2140 might be worth looking at, but honestly the Vaio P is in a class of its own.

Vaio P's are WAY too expensive! More over, it runs vista.

Doesn't it run the weakest available Atom processor?

I can't imagine anyone wanting to spend $1,200 on a computer that will be barely able to surf the web.

At least the thing is damn saxxxy.

The Sony P its still my fav one until the moment xD

I think vista would suck on it, thats why i'll change to one of the Linux Distro available(probably Backtrack 4)

Anyone knows other nice Mini Notes?

Backtrack is NOT a day-to-day OS, meant only for security testing, it doesn't have a package manager of any sort, etc. Personally I recommend arch because it's very lightweight and you're not going to have a very powerful processor. 3G + GPS built in along with the 1600x768 resolution screen makes it an amazing netbook if you can afford it though.

Personally I'll be getting an Acer Aspire One soon for $300 because I'm a broke teenager.

I just bought the Asus Eee PC 1000H a few weeks ago for $330 and have been very happy with it ever since. One of the things that I love about it is that it is extremely easy to upgrade, yet even out of the box it is powerful enough for sys admin tasks, etc.

I would have to say the Lenovo Ideapad S10 is my favorite netbook, its very slim has some room to grow.

I upgraded mine with a 320GB 7200 RPM HDD, 2 GB RAM, Atheros A,B,G,N and also bluetooth.

I have Vista, XP, OS X, Ubuntu, BT3 and BT4 installed on it.

BackTrack 4 is being designed as a 'day-to-day' os. They are using Ubuntu as the base.

the acer aspire one is probably the best bang for your buck as far as netbooks go. personally i love my hp mini note, of course i have the best spec version, it runs a little expensive i think theyre still around 800 bucks or so but im still having a hard time finding a netbook with better specs.

Thanks a lot for the input guys ;)

Yeah, i also read that Backtrack is changing to a Full Distro - based in Ubuntu . So i guess it can became a fun Distro, otherwise ill try Arch or Mint...

Ill keep a look in Acer Aspire One, it seems really nice too and maybe by the time i have the money there will be an "Acer Aspire Two" :P
