I'm looking at possibly buying a netbook. My main use for this would be as a portable Internet platform (emails, Skype etc.), with gaming being relatively unimportant. Nevertheless, I'd be interested in something that's decent at least for old-ish or indie games if it doesn't cost a lot more than something that's hopeless for games, and if it isn't so big or heavy that it becomes non-portable. (I walk and use public transport, so being happy carrying it is important.)
Does the Hivemind have any thoughts on this? Is it worth looking for one of the Asus models that has a real graphics card, or is that mainly a gimmick because of other limitations of the platform?
