It's a lovely, lovely little machine. The display is apparently LED-lit, making its power consumption relatively low. It's in your price range, so I'd suggest giving it a look.
Thanks, I'll definitely take a look. How is ACPI support?

edit: Also, I notice that the u6e has a rather small screen. What resolution can you get with that 12.1", and how cramped is the keyboard?
