I was shocked when my boss opened up this teeny tiny 'laptop' today and announced he was going to switch out the desktops at work and buy this netbook thing. Sure, it was cute...like a miniature version of my big laptop, but it proved to be risky because he carried it off on a stack of files and while trying to open the door, it fell down and suffered a rather nasty crack across the top of the case (what a klutz )
I came home and looked up netbooks and this dude's blog pretty much explains it. I just don't understand the benefits of spending 400 bucks on this frail thing when you can get a bigger, faster laptop with more capabilities for the same price as this glorified cellphone.
Netbooks <--check out the blog here.
If you want to be trendy or have something "cute", go for it. Otherwise, I would recommend sticking to the regular notebooks/laptops (my boss changed his mind, by the way).
