I am fan of the netbook (mostly because I like new toys) — but I don’t think I will ever own one. My wife might one day, but probably not me. I just don’t think I can sacrifice the power. I like a computer to be good enough to suit my whim of the moment, so, while it doesn’t have to be a super beast of a machine, it has to be able at least support my favourite games. This could be difficult on a tiny screen anyway — but I’d give it a go.

That said, this one seem to me to be better than many of the ones on the market. I am curious to see what the netbook world will be like once the convertible tablet really starts to push into the market.
