Where would be the cheapest place to buy a netbook? I have decided that if Apple don't release a netbook on January 6, that I will buy a MSI Wind or Asus Eee PC and "convert it". I have a real need for a netbook, but I want one with Mac OS X on it (DIY project to keep me busy for the rest of my holidays).

MSY had 701 eeePCs for only $299 + 4gb card

Keep in mind that OSX still has problems with wireless on eeePC and a few audio glitches apparently.
The little eeePC's are great - only issue I found is battery life isn't all that great, and they still tend to burn through battery power at about 5% a day even when off.
