Has anyone compared multiple netbooks and found one with a decent size keyboard? This is a decising factor mostly since all of them are pretty close in specs with little variation, in particular the Acer Aspire One, Lenovo IdeaPad S10, and MSI Wind.

Hey Dungeon.

The HP Mini laptop has been compared favourably to the Mac keyboard.



Unfortunately, it has an underwhelmingly small screen and an even more underwhelming CPU for the dollars involved.

Capping it off; it's one of the more expen$$$ive units in its class.

Oh well...

Samsung NC10
This 10-inch netbook trumps the field with its spacious keyboard and more than 6 hours of battery life.

Not sure if it's in the US yet and a little expensive.

$499 seems higher than I would like to pay, I would like to keep it at most $399 since after that it starts to seem like more than it's worth. I'm still waiting to see that $200 netbook ASUS promised though.
