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?

I have an Acer Aspire One A110. Originally it came with that horrible Linpus thing on the world's crappiest SSD, but after some serious internal modification, it's now a pretty sweet deal. I made room for a 30GB 1.8" iPod drive, and upped the RAM from 512MB to 1.5GB.

I run Windows 7 on it to great satisfaction, and use it mostly... In bed. Before I go to sleep, I use it to manage OSNews and watch television series stored on my media centre, and in the morning again to manage OSNews.

It replaced my laptop, a 15" 1.25Ghz G4 PowerBook, completely. My main machine is a desktop.
