    It really depends on what your looking to use the device for.

    Hi and welcome to the site Stevie, we are looking at the RM easybook at the moment I have seen the prototype at the last technical seminar and next Friday I will be looking at the finished article and we may will look to use them to replace all student laptops in future.

    The Samsung N series can't be beat
    The N130 can certainly be beaten on a Ruckus network - they don't work properly

    Not quite Netbooks (or laptops) but i've been very pleased with the Toshiba T110-121.
    As it has a 11.6" screen (whereas netbooks are ~10") it does make a difference using the the bigger keyboard, 6 cell battery (upto 8 hours) and wireless works fine with Ruckus.

    I'd be very interested to hear of any problems as we have a Ruckus environment and are hoping to buy some netbooks soon - don't want to get ones that don't work!

    I have just been dealing with an Asus EEE pc R101. They are really good. I think they have got the screen size and the keybaord size perfect. I put Windows 7 on it and its pretty nippy.

    I think it cost them 200 from a high street retailer.

    We have N130s/NC10s for our younger pupils and NC20s for the VI formers, they're not bad... but they are very easily damaged, even with protective casings.

    We have a Ruckus environment, we've had absolutely no problems. Initially I used Fog to deploy images for these machines but now, we do it one by one to check the damage on the machines - we want to get as much done whilst in warranty rather than out.
