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?

Currently running Fedora 11 on my Aspire A150. Though I thinking of install Jolicloud and only have Fedora/Ubuntu as second grub-choice.

I rsync photos and documents with my main computer and when I'm going anywhere, I almost always have it in the car just in case someone wants to see some photos, I want to access a document or I need to surf a little more than is convenient on my SonyEricsson (also have a 3g-modem in the bag).

Also using it as a bedcomputer (surf/watching videocasts)

Can also say that this question caused me to create a OSNews-account though I frequentky read the site for probably ten years or something. Since the days of BeOS anyway... :-)
