For example.  The EeePC 701 and 1005HA....

There are many others.   Dell is also a good example.  Great for 
travelling with other than an iPhone.  Samsung probably (?) make the 
best just now.  The netbook has introduced the concept of the fact 
that open source software accounts for about 30% of the netbook 
desktop market.  Some of that is GNU/Linux.  Some of it is BSD.

I've written for open source magazines for ten years.
