Netbook recovery using SDHC card

We have a few netbooks now and they are starting to be used for mission trips.  I thought the best way to have a backup available for them would be to utilize the SDHC slot and a card.  I'm looking for opinions on the best approach for this.  Currently, we're using Samsung Go N310's and one Dell Mini.

Thoughts on software/procedures?

I'd recommend that you just stick with the "normal" technique of making a backup image onto a USB-based storage device (probably a "thumb drive" would be sufficient for a netbook).  I'm thinking that a USB thumb drive would be considerably cheaper than an SDHC card (at the same capacity)
I perfer Acronis, but either the Vista/Win7 "native" image backup, or other 3rd-party imaging products (like Symantec's Ghost) would do fine.

Good advice.  Ordered Acronis for Netbooks and a 32GB USB drive.
