1. Geez... I've seen and touched the Asus product, not the HP one, but I generally do like HP hardware.

2. Apple iPod, for functional and purely practical reasons (industry support, iTMS accessibility, etc.) and for aesthetic reasons as well (I don't like Sony's designs, either when they're trying to be original -- which is both highly unusual and also rarely works out -- or when they're trying to copy someone else -- read: usually Apple)

1. Asus, I think they get the netbook idea a bit better than HP does.

2. If you want expandability to other devices - iPod
If you want something with better OS support - Sony

1: Depends on local pricing and battery specification.
In the UK right now the metal cased Linux HP 2133 is under 200, the plastic Linux Eee1000 is almost 300, so the HP would be my choice of the two.
Also, the HP 2133 has by far the highest resolution screen of any netbook.

2: Neither. Sony = expensive badge, Apple = DRM and expensive badge.
