I've been using a Dell Mini 9 w/ Snow Leopard for over a year now and have been very happy with it. However, I have the upgrade itch and was thinking about going with a Asus 1201N mainly due to the slightly larger screen, faster CPU and GFX. Is this a worthwhile upgrade? if not, should I be looking at another netbook or should I wait for another product?

i'm also in the market for a new netbook or notebook as my mbair was recently stolen... is the 1201N the best bang for the buck at this point in time or are there better choices?

I considered a 1201n and even had the opportunity to get one for under $200, but there are just too many issues. If someone figured out sleep with Lion I might look at it again, but you have to consider the CPU is really dated.

Hopefully MacBook Air prices continue to drop. I was hoping the ultrabooks would be cheaper but it's looking as though they will be in the same price range as the Air.
