What netbook do you prefer for pentesting?

Having used?two different models of?EEEPCs, Acer 1, Dell Mini, Dell lattitude 2100, the lenovo,?and the HP 2133, for 
various duties inclusive of pentesting, the HP wins. I normally loathe HP computers but this device?surprisingly turns 
out to be?my favorite of the lot. It has an Expresscard slot and the case is aluminium. The downside of course is that 
save the new Dell lattitude, it is the most expensive device. 
Why so many different netbooks you ask? Well some Executive securely locked in his/her ivory tower somewhere thought it 
would be a great cost saving measure for the mobile workforce to replace our?encrypted notebooks with netbooks. I hate 
it when an Executive gets ahold of a PC magazine.....?
I sure wish Apple would get into this market. I think that they could easily own it in short order.

?I am in the market for a netbook & was wondering what is the weapon of choice for pentesting?

?I know Paul talked about his experiences with the EEEPC on the show, what other netbooks are you folks fond of?
