I have one of these:

This badboy can even play games like Crysis and Call of Duty 4! Yeah on a Netbook

Ok they are a little slow, <25fps but they run well enough to play.

And all emulation I have tried works great, N64, Megadrive, Snes, Amiga(awesome)

I have an RTG workbench setup at the native resolution of 1024x600 and have all WHDLoad setup oh and even ShapeShifter so I have my Windows PC emulating an Amiga emulating a MAC! And even that runs great!

I can't speak highly enough of this Netbook, its the only one I know that has a dedictated Graphics Card.

I'd be happy to make a little video of it running for you?

I got mine for £175 (2nd user but like new) from eBay about 3-4 months ago, best purchase I made this year

Now thats what im talking about! lol I have a top end pc for gaming and a decent 512mb gfx card in my laptop, the netbook would be just for emulation. To know its got a decent gfx card under the hood in reserve is perfect. I think il go 2nd hand too. £175 is great, id buy 2 lol Thanks so much for the info steve, you have saved me a heck of a lot of search time as theres millions of netbooks :-)
