Ones to avoid
Suggest avoiding any with radeon/nvidia video or broadcom wireless. These have had major config difficulties in puppy. Suggest choosing one with atheros wireless & intel video.
I've had lots of problems with the HP Pavilion dm1-4018, which is very similar to the Lenovo s205. Racy522 worked after lots of tweaks.

netbooks Subject description: Choosing a netbook
I am using a lenovo thinkpad with which I am well satisfied, I was surprised that it came with ntfs installed. Since I cannot write to windows from linux. I use usb flash drives which are fat 32. I have read that others have had problems when the tried to instsall to a windows ntfs partition (I use puppy on a flash drive). The next time I will make sure that fat 32 or fat 64 is the system used in windows.
