i would advise you to get the asus i have seen it last and have very few problems and i see them all the time
and asus has software to change your desktop picture which is one of the draw backs to windows 7 starter.
I bought an Asus from woot a while back and it is still working fine. You can remove Win 7 Starter and just put XP on it. It will perform better too. There are instructions on the web on how to prep it for install without a CD drive.
Vizio 32” 720p LCD HDTV (2 of them), Seagate 750GB SATA/300 7200RPM Hard Drive, SiliconDust HDHomeRun Dual Digital HDTV Tuner, Kodak Theater HD Player, Acer Aspire One 10.1” Netbook, Philips Prestigo 8-Device Universal Remote, Asus Eee PC 900 Netbook with 1.6GHz Atom Processor, Philips Upconverting DVD Player with DivX and HDMI, Ashley Rock Axe Full Size Rockband and Guitar Hero Controller for PS2 and PS3, Philips Icon 5 Device Universal Remote, and a bunch of other carp.

Purchased the D250 Acer refurb w/the case, external DVD, and wireless mouse awhile back. Have not been disappointed in the least. Fast enough for generic work, enough capacity to function as a hub for my photographs, allowing me to stay connected on the go.
Attached an 18 dollar set of Altec-Lansing speakers from Staples, and it functioned well as a movie player using VLC Media Player. Produced surprising results playing movies like Saving Private Ryan while on vacation in the cottage.....
Woo@@@@@@@ooT.........Ooops, was that me?
Beggin' your pardon, it must have been the w@@t soup.

There have always been companies trying to foist a "not ready for prime time" OS on an unsuspecting public. Ten years ago it was Brother with a line of laptops running DOS covered over by GEOS. Not a bad system, but it could not run Window 3.1 progs, etc. Doomed to fail. Watch for Sylvanias at $39.95 after Christmas...trust me.
