    they're too small to watch movies on. they don't have a disc drive. they come with very little RAM.

    they've got a purpose, but i have an iPhone so i don't need something to just surf the net on.

    give me a good old fashioned laptop any day of the week.

    I get that. But size and portability are at a premium. I don't want to watch movies on it. I've got a 50" Samsung TV w/ a ps3 & dvr for that. If I need drivers for peripherals I can get them online. If I need to install software that is store bought I need only to load it on a mybook through my tower and install via usb. It's no big thing really. What I love about the thing is that it's not a laptop. I don't want to burn discs with it. I've got a great lightscribe capable writer on my tower. I just think of the net book as an extension of my home pc. I don't just surf web content on it though. I'm doing work on it, away from home. I don't want a laptop because I don't want to drag it around. Netbook is the size of an average workbook. It's really more a working device for me than a recreational one. I really appreciate the input though because you make some very valid points especially about the RAM.

    I carry a netbook everywhere I go. I primarily use it to remote desktop into my main machine. Works great.

    Slight exaggeration. 13" is a huge difference. Sorry.
