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've been looking for a new portable. I have a five-year old Dell relegated to only playing TV shows and the battery is beyond hope.


I've been thinking about maybe a netbook, but probably more on the tablet PC side. I can't draw on regular paper but I can't stop using a tablet PC -- drawing, writing, etc...

Depending on what Apple makes their tablet be; if it runs like a regular PC, I might get it (if it's priced right), if it's just a bigger iPod Touch, I'll find something else. It's all still up in the air, but it's something I've wanted for a while now.
