Need help deciding

I am about to buy a budget laptop and am thinking of the following:
Asus eee PC 105HA N280
MSI Wind U135 1.66GHz

Which is best?
Is there another laptop to consider?

You didn't share.

Your post only listed models and not what your criteria for best would be.

If price, then shop by price.
If display, go see each and see what you like.

Both are not laptops. I'm finding folk buy a netbook and then scream in frustration over no DVDRW drive (well they did choose this machine?) or that hunching over the small machine causes them other pains.

That's it. What is this used for?

The office has a few.

We have a few. Acer, emachine but I can't say I'd pick one over the others. We paid from 228 to 299 bucks and these are utilitarian machines we use for demos, presentations and such. No one uses them for hours on end.
