Which netbook is the right netbook to buy?

So I, as you all know, have a first generation Asus Eee PC that I’ve hacked, broken, and rebuilt a few dozen times and which is now a nice little hackintosh machine running Tiger that only connects to the internet via my AT&T 3G USB card because it doesn’t recognize the internal WiFi card and sometimes fails to boot properly if an external monitor isn’t plugged into the VGA port at boot time. It’s a good little machine that has served me well for the past year, but sometimes, I start thinking about getting a new one.

Well, Obsessable just published a comparator that pits all the current popular netbooks up against one another, so I can spend far too much time sorting back and forth between the different models and dreaming about possibly upgrading to something new that I can freshly hack with new hacks and actually get Leopard running on it. Check it out.

Here’s a list of some of the netbooks and related items covered by the netbook comparator: Netbook, SSD, MSI Wind U120, Asus S101, Asus Eee PC 1000, HP Mini 1000, Dell Inspiron Mini 9, Acer Aspire One, Lenovo IdeaPad S10, Averatec Buddy, BenQ Joybook Lite U101.

UPDATE: Brian weighs in with his thoughts on netbooks over at his blog.
