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?

I've got a Gateway LT3103u netbook with a 1.2GHz 64-bit proc, 2 GB of RAM, ATI Radeon Graphics of some kind, HD audio, and 250GB HD--I too was surprised when I saw the specs.

I use (it for) Ardour, JACK, Audacity, VirtualBox (for work), Songbird, OpenOffice, Kontact, Firefox, ssh/web development, downloading torrents, Skype, Pidgin.

Which is almost exactly what I would do on a desktop pc.
