I would suggest that you buy acer aspire one for 199.
does the job, works brilliantly with ubuntu :-)

I use an MSI wind. With 9.04, wi-fi works out of the box. My MSI has the updated bios which allows me to overclock from stock to +24% ghz .... ok for games... although I had to flash the BIOS to get this.

The Dell mini 12 looks nice and comfortable for touch-typing... however will cost more than your budget.

I suggest you try tthe keyboard, trackpad and the screensize with a couple of websites. Get the one you're most comfortable with. All other specs would be similar, if not the same.

Best of luck.
