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?

EEE PC 4G

I used my Asus EEE PC 4G on holiday for moving pictures from my digital camera to a portable hard disk, my wife/son watched movies on it (I used my iPod Classic) and I used it to check the results of my diving goggles with build-in camera (but no display).

It runs an Ubuntu based distro called OpenGEU.

At home I don't use it, prefer my iPhone for mobile computing as the EEE is pretty slow and most software is crap.
