in reply to (OT) Experiences with Netbooks

What do you think of netbooks?

I used to be a netbook addict, I'm biased as well;) Took it with me everywhere. Under 1 kg, 1GB RAM and 160GB HD. Extremely useful, perfect for traveling. Compared to the big fat DELL I was dragging around on airports a real blessing. I could even work on it:) Though netbooks are no match for a "real" laptop IMHO. Lets say they serve their purpose and have a right to exist. They are powerful enough to run any operating system (OS-X, Ubuntu and Windows XP)

After a disk crash, kicking myself for not buying one with a solid state disk, I had to choose between fixing it (new HD + new adapter) vs buy a new toy. In the end I bought an Asus transformer, connected to the keyboard it's almost a real netbeook, I say almost because a dedicated netbook is better, without the keyboard it's a decent tablet. Now I use it so much that I still haven't repaired my old netbook. Both the tablet and keyboard have batteries which add up to days of usage without charging.

Bottom line you need all, a laptop, netbook and tablet. And don't forget the smartphone:)
