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 9" Aspire One takes up little room and weighs less than 1kg, and even the much-hyped Macbook Air doesn't come close to that. And while it's no good for playing 3d games or doing video editing, it's perfectly sufficient for email, web browsing, and basic photo editing - exactly the kind of thing you might want to do while traveling around the world...


Sorry, I prefer 1 kg more but more screen real estate :-)
