this is 'offtopic' but i can't post in that area yet.
Can anyone recommend or tell me about the cheapest hdmi netbook?
nothing else is a factor, as long as it outputs smooth consistent 1080p video.
this is what i've found so far, for 489 AUD:
Asus K52F-SX134V i350M,15.6",2G+1GDDR3,320G/11N/SM/0.3M/W7HP64B
i mainly want it as a media player to sit under my tv.
Why netbook, not a tablet?
What about Asus Eee Pad Transformer + Docking station? HDMI in place and can play 1080p just perfectly. And lot of other things - for example GPS can be very usefull in "various adventures".
