Netbooks are underpowered. Get a *real* notebook/laptop. You can get a
much better computer for about the same money. The only advantage I can
see in a netbook is battery life. I speak from experience.

Weight? I haven't done extensive research, but can you get an
equivalent laptop at the same weight for the same price? My
understanding is that one pays a premium for the ultra-light category.


I confess, I forgot weight.

On the other hand, I think that for me, weight doesn't factor in much.

Size. A little almost-handheld netbook just isn't as physically in danger of cracking in your knapsack as a 15" or 17" laptop.

Dissent is patriotic, remember?
