I'm looking to buy a new netbook, or laptop. I'm not looking for a monster capable of running games, and I'd like one able to use the GPS system.

Some models with GPS seem a bit pricey, and the pcmcia cards look enormous. I even read the instructions of the guy who put a gps unit in is eeePC, but it seems a bit too complicated to do for me, plus he says he gets a bad reception.

If we can have gps in a iphone, surely it mustn't be that hard to have it in a netbook ?

The Dell Mini 10 (pictured), and the Eee PC T91 have a built in GPS and are both in your price range. Also, you can buy a GPS receiver and software for a laptop or netbook.

I used a regular laptop with this thing GPS-18 - worked fine. Could save some money if you've already got a laptop/netbook, and the thing is practically indestructible (fell off the car's roof), and has an excellent signal receiver.
