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?

My MSI-Wind U100 runs Fedora 11. I upgraded the ram to 2GB and the HDD to 320Gb.
For apps, I run DB2, Oracle and Websphere

Most of the time, it is connected to a bigger screen but I can do lots of stuff on the netbook screen.

The only issue was the Wireless but that soon got sorted.
