I almost got one of those before the dell mini came out....
I got tired of msi never sending out any Linux models....
I am getting close to feeling the same about the dell...

I'd personally be hesitant to buy anything other than a Dell after having an Eee with horrible build quality. I appreciate the fact that they essentially started the netbook market, but I want something built to last.

I guess Dell have at least tried to offer Ubuntu as an alternative to Windows, even if it does add 2 weeks to the preliminary shipping date!

MSI appear to offer nothing but Windows with all of their netbook products.

MSI anounced a SUSE version at teh same time as the windows...
I would have scratched the suse in favor of Ubuntu..... but i am going to be happier with the dell.... I am less likely to overload it with crap i do not need.
