Lenovo's netbooks so far have been ideapads, and I love my s10-3, but for doing proper work I can see form over function design; especially the track pad and the integrated left/right click. After owning a Thinkpads for years, I can say they really are the best for no frills business tasks, unfortunately thought they don't make a netbook...but wait, THEY DO

This is a modified mini 10 with an atom processor; it's a custom order for New South Wales High-school kids in Australia. You can see typical Thinkpad engineering, and best of all a decent track pad and buttons! This is sweet, but since it's a custom order by the Australian government the general public can't order one (unless your a school kid lol).
But if your keen, and a serious aficionado check this out:

Perhaps it wont be too long before all these kids graduate and start selling they're netbooks, then maybe I could get one cheap
Anyway, food for thought.
