I'm interested in buying an eeepc, these two models in particular. I'm having a pretty hard time deciding which one I should plop down my 250+ dollars on, however, as I pretty much only know that the PE models are the newer of the two. I'm not too concerned with 14 hours of battery life versus 11, but I'm more worried about actual performance to cost.

So out of those models what do you guys think? Cheaper is always better, but I'm not sure with these netbooks if it really is or not.
edit: After reading up on these netbooks more, I've come to the conclusion that these two: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220743&cm_re=eeepc-_-34-220-743-_-Product
, will end up being the ones I will have to choose between (apparently n450 processors are awesome on netbooks?) They cost around 250 and 309 respectively, shipping included.
Has anyone had any experience ordering these things "recertified" from newegg? If it's all kosher I may just end up getting that one.
