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 IdeaPad S10 has WinXP Home, Office 07, Google Earth, Photoshop Elements 2.0, and Windows Live as my main tools. I bought it primarily for my PowerPoint lectures in my college classes when I was a part-time teacher last semester; now I still use it to check my e-mail on the POP server side and delete junk on the server so that when I do the actual download of mail on my desktop, only legit mail gets in. I also do more browsing (and all my video chat) with it because for some reason, my desktop (1 GHz Celeron with 1.25 GB RAM) bogs down on browsing and video and I haven't fixed the problem yet despite my best efforts. I want to use an external hard drive to swap between my two machines so that e-mail and documents can be easily synched between the two. It's partnered with my Nokia E75 via PC Suite so that my phone's data is backed up into it. And of course, when I anticipate I'll be traveling to a place with WiFi, I bring my netbook along with me.
