What's the decent, cheap laptop to buy these days?

I have a 5-year-old Gateway laptop that's just about had it. I do all sorts of fancy computer stuff at work, but at home all I really need is a netbook-type thing, but with a full-sized keyboard and reasonably-sized screen. You know, surfing the web, watching a few Youtube videos, nothing fancy, no gaming or graphics or such.
I'm seeing lots of units around $350, which is fine, but I could be talked into something higher, if it's justified. I'll likely keep it until it wears out. I could use a new printer, too.
What's the deal right now?
