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?

Ebook/Comicbook Reader

I use my little Aspire One 8.5" as an entertainment device.
It works perfectly for Comix, the awesome comicbook reader, as it lets me rotate the screen, so it matches the form factor of a "real" book. It works well as a regular ebook reader too.

Once in a great while I might use it to surf while laying on the couch and other people are using the big screen.

We also use it for Drive-in Movie Night. I hook up a pair of speakers and the projector and point it at the side of the garage. The kids love it.

Lastly we use it for music for our outdoor parties. I can put everything in one large duffle bug, so it is easily transported.
