    I was trying to find one in-store around here, and the in-store selection in all the local places sucked. It was this one or a Toshiba. It was $335 with a one year accidental warranty. I like it so far, no problems other than a minor increase in typo rate due to adjusting to the keyboard size. Thanks for everyone’s input!

    I got a netbook a few months ago because my laptop crashed hard on me, right before college started up again. I like the netbook for taking notes in class, but if you plan to do any sort of major typing, it can be a pain. I have rather large hands and the smaller keys make me slower, with more mistakes.

    From what I’ve seen, 10″+ screens supposedly have pretty decent sized keyboards, not too difficult to adjust to. Although I haven’t actually physically inspected one yet.

    I could put a picture of it here if u want. it’s small. Fits in my purse (not saying much cuz my laptop does too). Smaller than standard size keyboard. I dont worry about it as much as the laptop since it was cheap. Bigger permanent memory than my laptop. Its best for internet/e-mail. IDK if you’d be comfortable writing on it for an extended period of time. I guess you can get used to anything? I like it.

    Hello everybody. I’ve been thinking about getting a Netbook for writing on-the-go, or just to get outside while writing. I’ve been looking at articles online and I’ve found a few Netbooks that look pretty good, but I’d like to hear from anyone here that uses them or has used one before and are quite satisfied with it.
