Therefore, while I don't need Office on either one of my (soon to be) two netbooks, it is good to know that these machines are capable of handling it.
In my case, the most "extreme" I intend to get with the netbook is to potentially dual-boot with a Linux variant (seriously looking at Joli OS), more as an experimental thing than anything else.
Thanks once again for the great feedback and the warm welcome

I'd get a 1012 with the 6 cell battery (despite the weight ) and Broadcom Crystal HD decoder. From the outlet, you should be able to find one under $250 (with a coupon).
Even if you don't want to play HD video, the card comes as a combo with the 1366x768 screen. But be aware that some people might not like the super-res... personally, I'm one of the people who always wants more pixels. If there was a 1080p netbook, I'd get it

I think at this point it's just a matter of finding the best deal on a 1012.

I got a 1012 in January, the lower res one, (stats are in my siggy) and I love it! I really enjoy using it and I just use Wordpad for light word processing. I have had no trouble with it and no problem surfing, I think you'll enjoy it. It's a great machine AND IF you DO decide to upgrade the RAM, it's much easier then say the 1018 is to do that with. Welcome to the board and good luck scoring a good deal from the outlet, that's where I got mine and I paid $203 shipped. Had a coupon plus a discount offered to me because they delayed shipping my originally ordered 1018-and MAN am I ever glad they did! They gave me $25 off and I was able to cancel it and reorder to get this great mini-computer with the 6 cell battery and a ice blue lid.
