NetBooks

Hey guys I was just wanting to see what your thoughts are on the new NetBooks out is. I have looked at some of the acers with the 1.6-2.0G processors and wasnt sure if they could run very many programs on them.
Does anyone use any of the ones out there with good results? TIA

I have the asus 1005ha and it fucking rocks. Advertises 8 hour battery life and I get a good 6 or 7 at least out if it. Cost me only 330. Definitely recommend it.

I bought my mother a dell mini 9 from Craigslist brand new for a couple hundred and she loves it with the addition of a mouse.

I picked up a Toshiba nb205 for my wife. Upgraded the ram for her and it runs sweet...

thanks guys for your recommendations I was looking at a couple at walmart last night. Do you think I should get the Win7 one or classic XP. I am wanting one so I can sit down in the family room or theater room and update my websites without having a full laptop on my lap. do most of them take standard laptop memory or is proprietary to netbooks and expensive? I have looked at some reviews but a bunch of em looked the same and canned not real people using them.
or would it be a better idea to just build a fast desktop for $300-350 and just mount one of my 15 monitors next to me and use my mini diNovo keyboard? decisions decisions

If you're going to hook it up to a mouse and keyboard, just build yourself a cheap desktop.

I love my Netbooks (Dell Mini 10v and Vostro A90) but they don't do much more than email and internet browsing (or run OSX) well.

Win 7!
It's been proven to drain the battery less in virtually every aspect(video playback, music playback, etc) than XP and Vista.

I got the HP dv2-11xx series.. 12.1" @ 1280x800.. 1.6ghz, 2 gb ram
love it.. only bad thing is it came with Vista.. but it works just great

it's small, not quite as small as a netbook - but a lot smaller and lighter than an ordinary laptop

Yeah. But I needed something handy to actually have in my lap. Had the dv5 *something* prior to this one and it was quite heavy in comparison. I don't use the laptop for real work, just mail, icq and surfing and such.

I'll be getting this netbook (they [Acer] classify it as a "notebook") before my next trip.

http://www.amazon.com/Acer-Aspire-AS...6512989&sr=1-2

1.4 Ghz Core 2 "Solo" processor (much faster than the Atom powered 11.6 Aspire One version)
