My hard drive took a dump today on my 1000H and I'm contemplating either buying a SSD or buy a new cheap netbook.

I can get a 30gb SSD from my wifes work for 90$. I could also get a 350gb regular HD for $50 but I kinda would like to upgrade it if I have to buy something new.

The netbooks only purpose is to record audio lectures, type notes, surf the net and misc files for school. Not labor intensive at all.

Are there any brand Netbooks that I should stay away from that may have Ubuntu compatibility issues with?

What do you suggest?

If your 1000H all works ok (apart from hdd) $50 hdd sounds the most cost effective & best answer to me.
Why buy new box if this one still works well ?
