    576?

    I have wireless N, a 6-cell battery, bluetooth, and 24 more vertical pixels on my screen, and I paid $100 less.
    What's so great about this thing? Maybe it's the lojack that makes it so expensive.

    This is a complete machine, you just have a wireless card, battery, bluetooth and a screen as far as I can tell.

    I have the asus eee 1000h, was on sale a few months ago and I snatched it up, it was $30 off normal price and had free shipping.

    There's no way the price difference between the N270 and the Z530 makes up for the price of the laptop.

    Not too impressive IMO. Not really an improvement or upgrade on existing models. Poor resolution.

    WARNING. Z530 may be limited to 1GB; no RAM upgrade options.

    No, this has the non-945GSE chipset! It has the GMA 500, which is the intel chipset specifically designed for the Atom; it is low powered and has many more features than the 945GSE, including (IIRC) support for dual channel RAM.
    I would buy this if I was into netbooks.
