    if yo have a specific use for them or are really short on space fine but by the time youve upgraded them to xp pro rather than home (total pain without a cd drive one day i will get windows to install from usb) they often cost as much as a laptop with a bigger screen.

    I love my MSI Wind, i had to swap its wireless card so that it would work in Fedora.

    i dont mind the size of them, infact im sure i use my netbook more than i would a full size laptop

    Too damn small for my liking. The cheapest ones are a bit too slow and the expensive ones are pointless when you can get a proper laptop for the same money!

    Only reason I'd have one would be for very light use when travelling.
