    Acer and Asus usually have good, affordable models. Don't trust the mainstream models (like the ones on TV) such as Dell and HP... they are okay hardware but customer support sucks.

    The problem is, Windows 7 Starter (netbook version) sucks a lot and XP would be a better choice. A full laptop or an a cheap tablet would be better choices.

    You can get a Home Premium upgrade for like 50 bucks... maybe less. I don't remember. But XP is definitely not better, and He obviously wants a netbook for the price so a full laptop is too much. Do some research on Newegg.com and look in your local Best Buy.

    My nephew has a 300 netbook from Bestbuy. It comes with Windows XP pre-installed. It's ridiculously small and painfully slow though.

    Oh come off it. T'aint that simple. I think Win7 would be a good choice as a netbook OS, but it is always good to consider another OS like the various linux options.

    You can get a 13" laptop for about $400 that will come with Windows 7
