Hardware, Embedded Systems As some of you may have noticed, I'm slightly obsessed with my Aspire One netbook, and actually, with netbooks in general. They are great little devices, more powerful than you'd give them credit for upon first encounter. And, but that might just be me, netbooks are what laptops should have been from day one: truly portable. El Reg has put together a buyer's guide for today's netbooks, and while the guide is generally spot-on with its assessments, it does present some odd choices here and there. Read on for some of my own thoughts grown out of experience.

I would never buy one

As a personal preference, I would never buy a netbook. You can barely type, see, or store anything on these tiny machines. You are already carrying a small laptop so why not increase it 2 inches more? The current storage is pathetic! The CPU power is laffable!

When they get netbooks or whatever they call them these days to have decent SSD storage and good CPU/GPU power. I might consider them.

Finally, with these specs why should I pay $300+? I wouldnt pay 100 for such devices.
