Need powerful netbook

Hi there,
I understand that Acer are launching a whole raft of netbooks over the coming months.
I would normally wait until the summer to buy but am leaving to travel abroad at the end of April and need to buy one soon.

I had wanted to go with the Acer Aspire One 532G but can't find one in Europe or with the 2Gb RAM and 320 Gb HDD.

I need:
.10.1" screen
.Windows 7 (English, and upgradable)
.2Gb RAM
.320 Gb HDD (at least)
.Dual graphic card (NVidia with the seamless switching between them to allow for performance/ power)

Also I would like to buy a 500Gb, small (not SSD) HDD, USB powered. If you have any ideas, please.

Any ideas would be grately appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

It seems your ideal machine doesn't yet exist.

Either go for a laptop with bigger screen, more RAM and better graphics (although dual will be a problem).
Or for a netbook with less memory and smaller harddisk and basic graphics.

Your choice.

Not yet.

Looks like you'll be waiting and waiting.

None of those out there

But how about checking out a Lenovo IdeaPad with a 13inch screen? You can customize the processor, RAM, video cards, and HDD I believe, to get what you want, and you're only adding a couple of inches to the screen.

I love my Toshiba, it does everything I need, including video and voip for my company softphone.
