ASUS 1201n

$484 on Amazon.

  • 1.6GHz Intel Atom Dual Core N330 Processor
  • 2GB DDR2 RAM, 2 x SODIMM Slot, 4GB Max
  • 250GB SATA Hard Drive (5400RPM) + 500GB Free Web Storage; NVidia ION Platform
  • Windows 7 Home Premium Operating System (32 Bit)
  • Bluetooth; Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n; 0.3MP Webcam;
  • 12.1" 1366x768 resolution display

    Of course, because it's an Atom, it'll be slow. But youtube reviews seem promising. If you're looking for a bigger system, you might not get past integrated graphics unless you get a refurbished laptop.
