Looking for a good Netbook. Recommendations?

Hi,
I've been looking around for a netbook for my sister. There are soo many netbooks out there and i just can't find one that matches the specs I'm after.
I'm looking for a dual core atom, 2GB RAM (not so important as I can upgrade that), Resolution more that 1024x600. She travels for business a lot and wants it for general web/word processing and some light Photoshop use.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Cheers
Chris

  1. Hello Boozley;

    Most of the specs you want are found in the 11.6" Netbooks.

    Can you explain 'light photoshop use'? Most 'Netbooks are not suitable for something that demanding.
  2. ASUS Eee PC 1215B $450
    AMD Dual-Core Processor E-350 (1.60GHz) 2GB RAM 320GB HDD 12.1" 1366x768 LCD w/ Radeon HD 6310 graphics

    ASUS Eee PC 1215P $400
    Intel Atom N550(1.50GHz) 1GB RAM 250GB HDD 12.1" 1366x768 LCD w/ Intel GMA 3150

    Notebooks are more often considered having enough power for 'light photoshop use'.
    Acer Aspire TimelineX AS3820T 13.3" Notebook $530
    Intel Core i3 380M (2.53GHz) 4GB RAM 500GB HDD 13.3" 1366x768 LCD w/ Intel HD Graphics

    lenovo G560 15.6" NoteBook $400
    Pentium P6200 2.13GHz (part of the i3/i5 family) 2GB RAM 250GB HDD 15.6" 1366x768 LCD w/ Intel HD Graphics
  3. I don't think that single core Athlon II Neo K125 in that Asus Eee PC 1215T-MU10 mentions is quite what you want.
  4. Passmark CPU benchmark scores:
    http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.php

    AMD Athlon II Neo K125 @ 1.7Ghz = 494
    Intel Atom N550 @ 1.50GHz = 564
    AMD E-350 @ 1.6Ghz = 739

    Intel Pentium P6200 @ 2.13GHz = 1675
    Intel Core i3 380M @ 2.53GHz = 2340
