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?

Include:

HP MiniNote 2133 w/ Ubuntu Hardy

Purpose: VPN into the workplace and admin machines. The resolution is great for Terminal Sessions, Cisco console sessions, and rdesktop for the Windoze session. Especially valuable for vacation and remote work when on call.

Dell Mini 9 Hackintosh

Purpose:

Same as the Mininote but as a daily carry around. Mainly a cheap experimental Unit. Has AT&T 3G card built in. Resolution doesn't fit my taste, so I cannot equate this on the same level as the HP. But it gets the job done. I usually draw the Ire of many mainstream MacBook Pro and iBook owners in Starbucks and on the Train when I sit next to the with my Apple Sticker on the Bezel.

I may purchase the Mini 10 and Ubuntuize it.
