I would suggest lenovo to. If it's for your daughter i can see that 128Gig SSD filling really really fast with either pictures or music, unless you are buying an external hard drive. SSD are all for speed, that's probably why its nearly $1000.A normal HDD would do just fine, unless you really just want that little bit of extra speed you get with a SSD. HDD's are cheaper and have way more space.a 750GIG HDD would be a better hard drive, but overall a good computer

the small form factor the OP is lookog at really means no HDD other than the SSD. the dell seems like a good deal but I do not know how important the small form factor is to the OP

So you are wanting a small form factor computer?
Here's a neat little computer from Lenovo called the Twist

Wow. That twist looks really neat. The one I saw at the Best Buy site was the tablet from Microsoft, so I thought that would be better, but this looks really good. Correct me but I think you can touch the screen on this as well, right? This looks great. Thank you!!

Yes. The screen is a touch screen
Also, the one priced at $890 would be your best bet. It would have plenty of space since you can upgrade the hard drive from 320GB to 500GB for an extra $50 . Also has the fastest processor offered in that series with the most RAM. I don't think you would be dissapointed with it.
