Default Searching for the PERFECT Netbook

Well I am looking to buy a new netbook but I just can't seem to find what I need.
1. 10.2" screen
2. weights less than 1.2KG
3. costs up to $300
4. needs a good graphics card
5. Windows2000/XP/Windows7
6. 6-cell battery

My friend introduces Degee I8B11D4 10.2" Netbook to me, but I don't know whether it is the "perfect" netbook or not.

So, please give me some suggestions, thanks.

I've been in a similar situation for a while now, but none of the netbooks out there really impress me either. The Pine Trail Atom processor isn't really all that great, and the better netbooks are pretty expensive.

Who knows if he's even gonna play Project 64 on that thing? He probably just sees us as a bunch of computer nerds or something

My idea of a perfect netbook is something with fast multi-core processing for some analysis software that I run, that has terrible controls for both the tri-pad and the keyboard, which is okay because I don't plan on touching it anyway except after leaving it to do its job overnight.

I'd rather have pj64 running on one of those half-assed handheld toys you get from Burger King or something.

Though fortunately this isn't in the Project64 support forum components so didn't ask about running on Project64.

Anything with the words "Intel GMA" doesn't have a snowball's chance in Hell of ever running PJ64. Okay, it might run some things fine, but when it comes to using Glide64, probably not. Something like an ATI Radeon HD 5650 equivalent would be a much better choice. Any notebook with nVidia Optimus should be avoided like the plague and yes, I have plenty of reasons to backup my opinion. Something like this http://www.amazon.com/Acer-AS7741G-6...0639944&sr=1-1 would do a better job than any netbook out there. The only problem with this is that finding a laptop cooler for this size may be difficult.
