Hmm, I was planning on running linux on this thing, maybe I won't after all, if at least, by the time I purchase, those Fusions are more obtainable in my budget. Maybe my budget will be higher. Who knows.

Also, that's a really nice deal sccr. I'm giving that consideration now.

dont buy that netbook.

refurb asus netbook ~ $250
SSD ~$150-$200

That'll set you back $400 for a slow pc paired with a super fast hard drive. and windows XP.

Take a look at the 11.6" AMD Fusion variety(HP DM1z, or the Lenovo x120e)
Or if u want a 10.1", the Asus 1015n.

Even skype video chat will output HD content. You're gonna want the extra horsepower for other things.

Basic netbooks are becoming obsolete; replaced by smartphones.
But if u still want a sub-$200 netbook, Craigslist is flooded with them. Haggle to your heart's delight.

Not to nit-pick here but a phone size screen is not something anyone in their right mind would want to type a paper up on. Come to think of it, that sounds like a great torture idea.

But if it hasn't sunk it OP. Most of us are going to with Fusion on this one. I think they may have already worked out most the bugs with it in Linux. Though you might get stuck using vesa. You'd have to get a N550+ION though to match the C-50 all-around.

SSD will garner stronger performance gains than a ram upgrade.

I had both at the time though lol

Well, no matter what I buy I'll be putting an SSD in it (If not in, then I'll run ubuntu off a flashdrive). And if it's affordable, more RAM, at least 2gb. I'm not sure I could handle 1.

You cant compare ram to an ssd in this situation... The netbooks he posted show 1 slot of ram with 1 gb each, you can 2gb for ~$20, or 4gb for ~$50 if you buy during a special (newegg has done a lot lately..)

At best that will almost get him a bad 32gb ssd, and then you effectively just used up your one HDD/SSD slot, so i dont think he wants that little of room for his netbook.

I don't have an ssd, but I think he is right on 3 points.
First, even when 1gb memory bottlenecks you wouldn't have any virtual memory problems since random read-writes are so quick on ssd's. Second, you increase performance as we all know and third > battery expectancy increases almost a healthy 30%.
