So I'm thinking off scraping my old Netbook, in favor of a new one. Any Ideas for a Netbook, thats low cost and would run BackTrack 5.  I'm a college student on a budget, just trying to test my own wireless security.

My only experience with a netbook is my Samsung ARM Chromebook and my wife's C7. They are very nice and easy to use. If you wanted you could install Linux on them.

If I were you I'd wait for the ASUS T100.  It's gonna be thoroughly modern (bay trail, touch screen, transformer, etc.) for just 350. 

 

Not sure how well Linux will support it though (I've never had good luck getting touch screens to work well in Linux).  But since you are asking about back track I assume you know what you are doing anyway.  But if you want something dead simple that will work out of the box, pay a little more and get a system76 laptop.
