Is it possible to install a broadcom card into the eee pc1001p? If not can I still watch 720p with the intel 3150?

Not sure, but the Dell and HP mini's have an option to include them.

And 720 will play with the 3150, but it's choppy [at least on my netbook it is], don't even think about playing 1080, lol.

I wouldn't at all say it in the way he did. It's like comparing Apples to Oranges. Though the SSDs included in entry level netbooks are often super cheap ultra low end models. As such the benefits are not near as pronounced, to say a higher end SSD like an OCZ. They are also usually extremely small, like 4GB-16GB. Though I'm sure as SSDs get cheaper that will change.

Oh I thought he meant any SSD. I've got an Intel V 40GB that I want to pair up with a netbook/laptop, would suck if it wasn't any better than a regular HDD.

I'm pretty sure he didn't mean just any SSD. If he did, he would be horribly, horribly wrong. That Intel SSD will blow any platter hard drive out of the water, without question, it might even LOL at any platter drive that comes near. For proof, I even upgraded to a Corsair Nova 32GB SSD and it's noticeably faster than my two Samung F3 1TB drives in RAID-0 (it is one of the fastest mechanical hard drives on the market). My boot time went from 56 seconds to 30 seconds, that's what I'm talking about. The OS install on the F3s was fairly new as well, so that is a pretty fair and direct comparison.

There are some exceptions to that. It depends on what kind of measurement you're going with; the X25-V is fairly slow for write operations (though it's great for reads).

Here's a great review of the X25-V 40GB
http://techreport.com/articles.x/18875

That said, I think the X25V is great from the perspective of good performance and low power for netbook use. There are rumors that in the next six months, we'll see an 80GB X25V released to replace the 40GB at the same price-point; I'm interested to see that.

I would suggest a dell mini 10v, its only around 350 bucks, can watch 720p fine, can be bought with a ssd, no 64 bit though, but I'm on it right now and its running xp pro sp2 and its fast as hell.

This is the one I'm getting: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834220660

I'm going to throw a scorpio black in it, aswell as a 4gb kit of cas5 ram.

Spending the extra $150 would definitely save you some head aches, even if it's only the stock netbook. You'll have a dual core ion platform netbook with decent battery life, not some cheap single core atom with 1gb ram and missing all major features that would make you want a netbook in the first place.
