I've been shopping around for a decent netbook system
(LED screen, Atom or equivalent, 2 GByte RAM, can take
SSDs (Kinston SSDNow-V series 64 GByte), effective battery 
life 5-8 h)), for roughly 500 EUR. I want to mostly use 
it as portable Nagios console, hooked up to UMTS via Bluetooth.  

So far I've found a Latitude 2100 (comes with Ubuntu 8.12)
and Asus Eee PC 1000HE. Any other recommendations? (Not
having to pay Microsoft tax in Germany is a plus).
