Acer, they rated surprisingly well against the other brands. But get the 10.2 inch one, Wal Mart even carries an 11.5 inch now too. I have an Asus 1000HA. Iwold sell it for 300$ shipped. I say stay away from them unless yo get some kind of extended warranty

Netbooks are cool. I want one but I know I would never use it considering I already have a laptop.

i've read that levono's s10 get extremely hot. OP, get yourself a dell mini 9 and hackintosh it

I thought so too, but then again my 17 inch Dell weighs about 40lbs, this weighs 2.

Plus what I do with mine is, I hide it from plain view at work when I'm on it. I open the 2nd from the top drawer at my desk just enough to sit in therewith the screen open, got a wireless mouse (and use the onscreen keyboard if I really want to be discrete) and I just %**!!*+$ around on the internet most ofthe day.

It's not even like I'm not allowed to do that because I am, but it just brings way more attention to the fact I don't do +!*! much of the day whenI have a gigantore laptop on my desk in front of my real computer.

Plus ot the 6 cell battery so I don't even bring the power cable with me most of the time, 6-7 hrs easily from that.

Walmart.com has free shipping and a huge assortment of options OP. Just stay away from anything with an SSD. IMO, they aren't worth it for the small amountof memory you get. You can get decent specs- 10 inch screen, 1gb ram, 160gb hd, 3usb ports, wifi/ethernet, 6 cell, and XP all for about 300$ and up

Buy yourself a bag, then add 60 more $ and cop one of these, usb powered (no power cable needed) CD/DVD DL writers

Yea, it is a normal laptop. What do you need an external for though?

for music mostly. don't they only have like an 8gb hd? i am going to do some research now...

oh damn, for some reason i was thinking of them as like a big ipod touch or something. looks like i am getting a netbook. 1gb of ram running windows xp and 160gb hard drive is more than i need.

you'll only need an external HDD if the NB has a SSD (
).. most NBsuse HDDs anyway..
you'll probably need an external optical drive if you wanna burn dvds, cds..

How durable is that Asus 1008HA to dude who posted it earlier?

I'm going to fight tooth and nail to send my 1000HA back probably and would consider it, but it just looks like it'd break easily. I'm kind ofrough and tumble with mine, I keep it with me all the time so I'm always kind of throwing it in the back of the car or under the seat or something
