What's a good netbook? I'd like to get something that isn't too poky that I can keep in the living room for surfing the web while watching tv. I'd like to keep the cost around $200

Hi lbloom,

You might want to check out PCMag's netbook and laptop reviews page. You can change the pricing from low to high.

That might be a good place to start and you can reviews of each model so you know the pros and cons of each computer.

You can find the ASUS Eee PC 1001PX at Newegg for $200, but with only 1GB of RAM I'm not sure how fast it is. Other models with bigger hard drives cost more but if you're just web surfing, this should be fine.
