Hardware, Embedded Systems The big thing in notebooks right now are netbooks. They're cheap, more than powerful enough for day-to-day tasks, and small enough to actually carry around without anyone even noticing you're carrying one (not a bad thing in some parts of the world). However, they also receive a lot of criticism, such as cramped keyboards and displays that are too small. So, at Kaiwai's suggestion, here's a question for you all: how do you use your netbook?

Desktop replacement

I use my Acer Aspire One ZG5 with Ubuntu NBR 9.04 as a desktop replacement. I do half of my work on it (I'm a lawyer), I code on it (python), I browse internet.

I use two more computers:
1. my office desktop (noname with Ubuntu 9.04) I am forced to use due to the corporate policy of data security.
2. My home PC (Dell Inspiron 1721 with Arch Linux 2009.08) for torrents and video encoding. In fact I use it as home server / advanced DVD-Recorder.

I use my netbook more frequently and I would use it almost exclusively if I wasn't forced to use a corporate desktop.
