Upgrade Apple iBook G4 or Purchase a Netbook?

My iBook G4 is dying. Not really but it’s in need of some upgrades(battery, memory, hard drive, OSX Leopard). I have a good desktop so the whole purpose of this netbook would be portability. I’m thinking of getting an Aspire One, see the list below.

Brand Model Price Speed Memory Storage Weight OS Display
Acer Aspire One $299.99 1.60 GHz 1 GB 160 GB 2.40 lbs XP 8.9″
Asus Eee PC $279.99 900 MHz 1 GB 160 GB 2.50 lbs XP 8.9″
Dell Mini 9 $299.99 1.60 GHz 1 GB 8 GB 2.30 lbs XP 8.9″
HP Mini 1000 $299.99 1.60 GHz 512 MB 16 GB 2.25 lbs XP 8.9″
Sony Vaio P $899.99 1.33 GHz 2 GB 60 GB 1.40 lbs Vista 8.0″
Apple iBook G4 1.33 GHz 512 MB 40 GB 5.90 lbs Tiger 12.0″
Apple iBook G4 $500.00 1.33 GHz 1.5 GB 120 GB 5.90 lbs Leopard 12.0″

Ok, so should I suck it up and keep using my now slow iBook, should I upgrade my iBook, or just get a Netbook? Let me know what you think!
