My current Asus EEEPC900 is literally falling apart and loves to overheat, thus, I need a new one.
I don't need it to have a lot a power or disk space, I won't be storing much on it besides the OS and that will be linix. I don't need a webcam, I don't need a CD drive. There are only two things that I will really need:
-Somewhat tough
-long battery life
I don't care if its new, used, or refurbished, and I don't care if its a newer or older model. As long as its relatively cheap I don't care.
So knowing all this, what do you suggest?

The cheapest you can get with usable new mobile computers is probably this ARM-based smartbook for $199:

Battery life is claimed to be 7 or 8 hours, IIRC.

Other than that, I'd suggest simply getting another EeePC of a newer generation.

Ohh, that sounds cool, but whats with the 3G thing? Is it like some free deal like with the Kindle? It does not say anything about subscribing to ATNT for service on the site.
3G/GSM would be really good for me because I want to replace my old one for the purpose of traveling.

Sorry, I don't know anything more about it apart from what's on the web site, and I didn't even read all of that.

Also notice how it doesn't have any built-in connectors for external displays or wired LAN, might be an issue.
