MSI Wind U120 is a great option for ultra-portability.

Excerpt: The MSI Wind U120 is a great second computer to take to the coffee shop, on airplanes, to the library, or even to the park. After having this computer for four months, I consistently get 4-5 hours from the battery depending on what programs I am using. It comes with its own case and is about the size of a Bible - I can even fit it in my purse. It also has the advantage of a "real" hard drive with Windows XP, while most other similarly-priced netbooks have the kind of...
Excerpt: I purchased my MSI Wind U120 in August 09. I use it 5-8 hours a day at work. I work in video production and this netbook has served my daily needs. I don't use it for editing or anything that intensive. But, I do occasionaly use photoshop on it and it runs it decently. I also have used it to edit flash video files and convert audio files. I am currently running Windows XP, Ubuntu, and Jolicloud on the wind. It handles all with ease. I also have read that you can...
Excerpt: After using the MSI Wind U100 purchased by my boyfriend. I went on a search for a "Wind" of my own. I did some research and found the MIS 120 fit my needs. I can not say enough about this wonderful little computer. The reception for wireless WiFi exceeds all other computers at work. While others are dropping signals or unable to connect all together my WIND has a very strong signal strength. It has a built in mic and webcam to add to the communication experience. ...
Summary: Definitely feels like an upgrade from the Eee PC 1000 HA that I also own. It's got better keyboard layout (no weird shift key placement like the Eee PC), more user friendly function key shortcuts, thinner, lighter and more eligant design, and with built-in blue tooth. However, the Eee PC does have a slightly better battery life, not significant though since both are 6 cells running on the same Atom processor.
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Fast, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Quiet
Summary: Overall good product. Limitations include poor audio quality with built-in speakers. Also the weight distribution is uneven towards the back, and tips over backwards when the screen is extended too far back.
Summary: I was skeptical about buying a netbook, but it paid off!! For [$] you can't lose. It is super fast starting up in under a minute. I can have Limewire open and 4 tabs running and still none or very little slow down. Lightweight and unbelievably small. The 10 inch screen is perfect for browsing. I cannot say enough about my MSI!!!
Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Great Software, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet
Summary: I'm initially excited about this product. It's sleek design wins admiring comments and questions. It is very portable. Screen colors are clear and bright. Many functions other computers don't have, such as turning computer cam on and off. Easy keyboard access to many functions. However...My thumb keeps hitting the cursor pad as I type, sending the cursor all over the page, every five or so keystrokes. Same problem with larger larger laptops.
Pros: Great Software, Lightweight, Powerful, Quality Display, Quiet
