I had posted in another place the idea of getting Netbooks for my classroom. Now I'm ready to move ahead and I need a good recommendation as to the right model to get.

We have about $2500-2700 to spend and we're going to purchase them very soon. We'd like to get about 8 of them, so roughly $300 is our target price. Most models are very similar, I have noted, except the high-end $400 models. We need the following:

* webcam * mic * at least 10" screen

Otherwise, the features are similar enough that they'll be fine: windows xp, decent battery life, runs basic windows office software, etc, etc,

This is a big investment made entirely of parent donations, so we want to get the best we can. What would be a good model to get?

Thanks!

thanks for making me aware of some good deals, but the problem is deciding which to go with...I just don't see a lot of obvious differences....I don't want to go ahead and purchase 8-9 machines, and then find out "Oh, I should have gotten THIS one..."

They're all "good" to some extent.
I would contact the marketing department of the big guys, especially Dell, and try to get a group discount.
I say Dell because their equipment is well made and they offer huge discounts from time to time. I've also seen some very good deals in their refurbished list.
