I am looking at purchasing a netbook. I have been doing my research and have it narrowed down to 3. Any and all input will be highly regarded. I think I would be happy with any of these. If Lenovo is true to the thinkpad reputation it is sturdier than most. WHat attracts me to the HA is it is hip and cool. I am a consultant and like to project that. The lenovo is a little more old school. Also please let me know if anyone knows of any new models coming out like for example a higher resolution screen. I am a techrepublic virgin so looking forward to hearing from the pros

1. Lenovo S10

Lenovo = sturdy construction
Express card slot
Easily removable battery
6 cell option

Design is boring
A little heavier
6 cell battery may protrudes from back
2 usb ports

Asus 1002 HA

Hip design
3 usb ports
Overclocking easy

3 cell only
keyboard not as desirable
black gloss border around screen anoying (so I read)

Asus 1000HE

3 USB ports
overclocking easy
6 cell integrated battery
Processor a little faster

Shiny black is hip but fingerprints easily
Integrated battery is nice and streamlined but maybe more difficult to swap out with a backup battery.
