Default mini laptop

So mom was lookin for an atom aka mini laptop netbook i guess they are called. I know nothing about them. for her trip to the olympics. They plan to use it to store some photos and book tickets online etc. No mom will not be overclocking so I'm not entertaining any posts regarding overclocking.

I am looking for something with decent support because I hate having to fix her stuff alla time. Any user reviews on this hardware would be fantastic.

Lenovo S10/S10-2/S10-3 is a good choice. I also prefer the Gateway AMD (yes, there is an AMD netbook) with the funny screen hinge (there's a gap at the bottom) because it has an excellent keyboard from what i used of it (it's a nice chiclet design).
