Personally if I was looking at a laptop I would probably be looking at an Asus or a Dell XPS series. It really depends on what you intend on using your laptop for, I would prefer something that had the power for a little gaming and the battery life for portability I don't know if such exist, but that would be the ideal laptop I would look for.

How much are you willing to spend? I'm personally looking at the Asus 1000H and 1000HA which run to about $500.

From what i've read, the Asus EEE 1000H/1000HA as mentioned by subliminal are pretty good, and also in that price range the MSN Wind's are pretty good too.
For lower budget... i would try Dell, i would've suggested teh Acer Aspire one as well but you said you don't like it.

Whatever you get, wait until boxing day/week sales. You could save 50 - 100$ easy.
