Help chosing a netbook for multimedia / movies

I am looking to buy a something small/light like a netbook that I can connect to an external monitor or projector for presentations, movies, and similar multimedia content. I would like movies to be smoothly played and with acceptable audio if attached to an external amplifier.

I was looking at the Gateway LT 3120u, or the Asus 1201N (or 1201PN)

I don't care much about battery life, because I can keep it plug in. DHMI is a nice extra feature, but not indispensable (I don't need really high quality picture).

Any suggestion? Are those Gateway and Asus netbook good enough for my needs? Or any other suggestion?

I don't want to spend more than $450.
