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?

Keep Them Small & Cheap

I have an Aspire One 8.9", 160 GB HD. Windows XP came installed and that's fine. I use it for email, web surfing, some word processing, I have my digital photos on it as well as iTunes and my iTunes Library. I got it at WalMart for USD 248.00.

To me, this is what the netbook is all about. I don't care about 3D games or HD playback, I don't care about anything it was not designed to handle. I can take it anywhere and it's never a hassle or a problem. Please keep them small, light and inexpensive.
