If you're not getting the mini9 you'd be better served with another netbook brand. Asus 1000he is a good option with 8.5hr battery life and a slightly faster cpu (can be found for ~350). It gets the heightened battery life from the "EPU" feature that turns off unused capacitors and a fairly large battery.

All that aside, the Mini9 getting discontinued doesn't make it obsolete and it's likely you're just having buyer's regret. If you like the mini9, keep it, if it's too small, not enough space, etc, return it and get what you want. I was going to get the 1000he (until i found a mini9 for $170) and that's what I'd recommend for an alternative.
I also picked up a 32gb Supertalent for $67 but there's plenty of smaller drives on ebay/online stores for much less than $200
