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.

What do you define as "laughable"? My Mini-note has a 7400RPM 120 gb HD. That's a far cry from my first NEC laptop's HD capacity.

I don't want something 2" larger, this fits in my backpack that way I don't have to carry two carry-ons on the plane thank you.

Just because it doen't fit your needs doesn't mean it won't fit other peoples needs.
