I've been looking at upgrading from my EEE700. The SSD is a bit
smallish at 4GB, and it seems that most of the bigger ones available
only work on the 900's and above from what I've been seeing online.
That, and the SSD's are almost half the price of a new unit.

Anyone know a machine along the lines of an EEE which still has SSD's
(the newer ones seem to be all HDD's again). As I lug my machine
around a fair bit, the impact-resistance and low consumption of the
SSD is somewhat preferable.

Optimal specs: something with an Atom CPU, 1024x600 screen, 16GB+ SSD,
wifi/cardreader/cam, and of course Linux-friendly drivers.
