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?

It's a bottom-of-the-line 2 GB SSD, but it still works fine for my purposes. It is a secondary machine (have a bigger laptop at home and desktop at work), used mainly for travel, but it is perfect for stowing in random carry-on baggage - no need for a special laptop bag. Wouldn't want anything heavier or bigger (it's 2 lbs). Hopefully this small form-factor will continue to be available despite the trend towards bigger, heavier, and more expensive machines.
