The CPU may leave something to be desired (it's a 1 GHz Via Antaur), but eight hundies isn't bad at all for an ultralight laptop now, is it? The LinspireMobilePC (aka the eNote UltraLite) comes with a 12.1-inch 1024x768 resolution screen, 256MB RAM, a 40GB hard drive, an Ethernet port, 2 USB 2.0 ports, and as you may or may not have guessed from the name (it depends on your level of geekiness) runs on the Linspire (formerly known as Lindows) version of Linux. Corners are cut, like you have to add WiFi yourself, but then again, if you're buying a lappy that runs on Linux, that jazz cannot possibly faze you.
