aaab, when you said you needed your netbook to run Linux, do you need to come preinstalled with it? Or the capabilities of running it? I assure you any Windows notebook you purchase- a Unix based OS will be capable of running on it also.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834230364
This laptop should be fine, the only thing though.. It does not have an SSD. It's hard to find a netbook that has an SSD because there is no reason for there to be one really... The performance boost on that low-powered netbook CPU will be much less notable compared to a desktop.. or a powerful laptop.
Good luck finding one though,
