But netbooks are painful to use for any length of time which makes me think you haven't used one for longer than what I see folk at the stores as they try them out.
For 399, I see laptops all over. The models move far too fast for me to list one but why not get your 10 key laptop?
I am a grad student. All I do with my computer is look at online journal articles with adobe, write papers, and email. I want to get a netbook b/c my daughter is on our desktop all day playing PBS Kids. Waiting for articles to load annoys me and I have fantasies of a 10-key area on the keyboard, but other than that I don't care. What to do?
