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 machine is Acer Aspire One D150 (10.1 inches screen, 160 GB HDD, 1GB RAM) with XP Home and PCLinuxOS dual booting.

I use it mainly for watching movies while travelling in train (around 1.5 hours journey to my office), playing some small games or reading e-books. Its a big relief in crowded trains of Mumbai as I can simply ignore all the chattering around. At home, I use it for netsurfing and as a download machine.
