Next-Gen Netbooks

Acer Aspire One D255

Acer's Aspire One netbooks have long been popular because of their strong combination of low prices and solid usability. The Aspire One D255 continues this tradition with a low starting price of $269 for the single-core version and only $329 for a configuration featuring Intel's dual core Atom N550 CPU.

ASUS Eee PC 1215N

If you want a netbook that looks and feels more like a notebook, the ASUS 1215PN is your best choice. With a 12-inch display, a dual-core Atom D525 CPU, and discrete Nvidia Ion 2 graphics, this system boasts best-in-class performance.

HP Mini 210

The most fashion-forward netbook yet, the Mini 210 comes in five colors, including Luminous Rose (pink), and Ocean Drive (blue). The $329 base configuration comes with a 1.6-GHz Atom N455 processor, but $110 more gets you a dual-core Atom N550 CPU and a Broadcom video accelerator for HD playback on a 1366 x 768 display.

Samsung N150 Plus

An attractive black chassis with red accents, a matte display with strong viewing angles, great audio quality, and more than 7 hours of battery life make the Samsung N150 a great choice for users on a budget. The netbook comes with 1GB of memory and is exclusive to Best Buy.

Toshiba NB305-N440

Toshiba's 10-inch netbook remains one of our favorites because of its large, responsive keyboard, generous touchpad, and handsome metallic looks. More than 8 hours of battery life and a sub-$400 price don't hurt either.
