 My daughter had a netbook.  She had a hard time giving up her full 
sized laptop because when she wants to take a break from studies she 
just clicks on Sims2 and dives in.  Her laptop with a modest graphics 
set is pressed playing Sims 2.  A netbook would be further pressed, 
although it probably just a chipset and process upgrade away from 
crossing that barrier... 

  Long story short, I've ended up with her netbook.  I've played with 
Ubuntu, and XP Pro.  It sees light duty while browsing in bed and I need 
to type something more than what I want to do with the stylus on the 
n800 or YouTube a little smoother.  The touch screen is a lot easier to 
use in bed.  Getting my netbook better synced with my laptop (or 
desktop) might help, but I've not had the time to sort task that out.

 If someone starts out with a decent recent release netbook, I suppose 
that might be all one needs for many mobile/work applications.  It would 
seem to make a very nice small footprint workstation for many business
