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?

was a netbook; the Acer AspireOne. I was looking for portability mostly. My job requires me to scan and map wireless networks and login using a VPN client.

It's so nice to hold the netbook up with one hand while working. At night I mostly use it to watch anime.

Some people complain about the small screen size. Hey, I remember when 9" screens were big (486 and Pentium days). My work PC has two big 22" screens and I have no problems switching back to the AspireOne.
