There's this:


307$, 11 inch screen, 4g ram, 320g drive and 1ghz celeron 847.

Also, the small thinkpads are pretty good - I got one from craigslist 
recently (x201) and I think you could find one comparable to the asus 
(or better) for about the same price.  A little heftier but nice 
keyboards, quiet, tough, and no linux driver problems.
