Regarding MeeGo, I once ran it on an HP Mini 1000 netbook and it was flawless. It actually ran better than the "native" Windows XP as well as any other Linux based OS I threw at it.

Just mentioning it in case an HP netbook is easier for you to acquire.

Netbook Meego and the (proprietary) UI of N9 are quite different... it's like trying to experience Windows Phone 8 (built on NT underpinning after all) by running Windows 8 in old desktop mode.

(plus, weren't all those oldish Atom netbooks pretty much the same?)
