Anyone wanna help me pick a netbook?

This is just gonna be a secondary computer for when I need it on the go, so I'm not looking to spend a lot. My budget is in the $250ish range.

Here's what I've been considering so far:

Gateway LT2032u LU.WCR0D.005 Netbook - Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz, 1GB DDR2, 250GB HDD, 10.1 WSVGA, Windows 7 Starter, Black at TigerDirect.com

Samsung NP-N130-JA01US Refurbished Netbook - Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz, 1GB DDR2, 160GB HDD, 10.1 WSVGA, Windows 7 Starter at TigerDirect.com

Hannspree HannsBook SN10E22BU3221 Netbook - Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz, 1GB DDR2, 250GB HDD, 10 WSVGA, 6-Cell, Windows 7 Starter, Black at TigerDirect.com

So far, I'm leaning towards the Hannspree. What do you guys think? If you have any recommendations, post 'em! Thanks!

What's the main difference between those and the Hannspree? Both seem to have the newer N450 processor and most, if not all, specs match up.

You can buy whatever you want. I've just never heard of Hannspree before, so recommended what I've seen work well.

Thanks. I'm just trying to make the most well informed decision I can.

@Reilly: The most I've seen is 2GB. But then again, you won't need as much RAM for a Netbook compared to a full Tower.

Also, most netbook mobos can't support more than 2GB and 7 starter only supports 2GB at the most.
