Brian - r u going to use the laptop for only EFI ? I have a friend that has the Asus and says it's great. My Mom has the Samsung Netbook and has had no problems. I think either one would be a good choice.
Good Luck

Minis are nice but would think it would suck for efi if you have to show a graph or something big. Plus the cheap screens mess with your eyes. Hell my eyes hurt right now and Ive only been on it for a hour. But it sure is portable fits in my pouch pocket in most of my hoodies!

Brian,
Had the same problem with my dell this week also. It was 9-10 yrs old. Ended up ordering another one from Dell. Just remember, minis dont come with cd drive.

I have a toshiba Satellite. I don't have EFI. I hate this freaking computer. Worst one i've ever owned. Problem after problem. Now the screen flickers and goes compeletly blank if its not set on a stand or table. It's still under warranty but it blows so bad I don't want to get it fixed. Anyhow, I don't recommend toshiba.

hate those little netbook basturds. They're just hard to use. I picked up an old toshiba sattelite for my efi stuff. It stays in thebtruck at all times. Anything old with windows xp will work great just format the sucker and it's like a brand new computer
