For some reason today I found it prudent to purchase a netbook. An Acer Asprire One.
and a pain in the buttocks touch pad and keyboard.
But you get what you pay for right? ;)
Nifty little thing however. Should make my days a tad more productive.
Runs Quake Live decently.
Doom ports seem just fine, although I don't think I'll try anything else to crazy on here.
mmm hulu while at work. Sweet...

I honestly don't know too much about netbooks, but I thought the whole appeal was with the 3G stuff. How easy is it to get a normal laptop to connect to it? Is it as easy as just putting in a card?
Some netbooks have a spot for a simcard, other laptops and PCs will accept a USB dongle which holds a simcard and has a 3G radio modem in it. Often these days, the USB 3G modem has a storage component (like a USB thumb drive) which stores some Windows software to get it working. The software may also come on a CD. Either way, your provider gives you an application in which you click "Connect" and you're on.
I configure these things in routers for a job, so I could waffle about technical specs but that's essentially it. Plug in USB, install software, click Connect. Instant internets anywhere.
