I'm seriously considering getting a netbook. I don't have a laptop and I really don't want one ... too big IMO to lug around. I already pay Verizon for unlimited access with my smartphone. I hear I can just plug the netbook into the smartphone for web access. the smartphone is okay ... but kind of small and moving the picture around and expanding and shrinking it is a PITA. Prices are like $250-$300. Battery life is supposed to be longer than the 2.5 hours of a laptop? I guess if you get an external hard drive you can even play games on them. NVIDEA is supposed to making a chip for them. I'm no computer geek but the word is these netbooks run on Linux ... is that good or bad? Best Buy has some with Windows XP home on them. Okay enough :blahblah: from me ... does anyone have one?
