Default List of games that will run on a netbook!

TF2 on an Eee PC 1000H, apparently. Though it looks like it takes aaaages to load a map, and needs a custom config.

I can play most games on my netbook, but that's cos it's an N10J with an Nvidia 256MB 9300M GS.

been playing Trine on my media center maybe i should give it a run on the N10
