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?

Which I think is a rebadged MSI Wind. I use it as my main machine for everything. Which is PuTTY, Pidgin, Firefox and winamp on Windows 7 Ultimate. The keyboard is a little small and I keep hitting enter when I mean to hit the '. If I know I'm going to be using it for a while I plug it into my TV and use a wireless keyboard from the sofa.

Since I use 3G as my only internet connection at home, the built in 3G modem is very useful. I use it on the train all the time.
