Cheapest notebook with built-in eSATA port

Has anyone identified what the cheapest notebook PC is with a dedicated built-in eSATA port (as opposed to using an add-on Expresscard solution)?

this is a pretty good brand, I think they and Asus make the best pc laptops.

The HP DV5 series has eSata, ExpressCard, SDHC, Firewire, USB and HDMI. Cheap too.

I tried to copy my EX1 Bvap files into an external hard drive using an Asus net book. It worked well and fast but when I went to view the clips either on the external drive or the sd cards or sxs cards. They were extremely jumpy. My dream is to buy one of these mini computers for filed transfer and checking but if the footage is jumpy forget about it. Anyone having any luck with these small systems?

Yeah, netbooks are pretty thin on CPU horsepower. They're great for Facebook and email, but probably not so much for realtime decoding (or encoding for that matter).
