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?

Uh. your math appears to be discounting the price you paid for your old Macbook in the first place to $0, which is a bit silly. Most people don't have an old Macbook to offset against the price of a new one...

My comment was ironic, you know :-)

The math is more or less correct. Since my first notebook (2003) I spent about €150/year for them, which is pretty good.
