My friend's acer is very nice.She has used it for three years and no repairment.
I don't like how my ASUS netbook doesn't have access to the hard drive.
You have to remove the keyboard to access the HD, but the problem is, that the cable for the keyboard is too short, and the rest of the netbook ribbon cables without connectors suck.

I'd stay clear from Acer, since I see far too many either get sent away for repair OR be defective in some way right out of the box. Asus, on the other hand, tends to be pretty good! HP is hit or miss, as is Dell; you're essentially playing Russian roulette with these guys. Also, oddly enough, I've seen and heard great things about Gateway. This is odd because they're owned by Acer and their products are pretty darn similar.
If Toshiba interests you at all, they seem to be among the best, longevity wise: I have an ancient Satellite A70 that still runs to this very day...
