I've also wanted a Netbook for a while, reckoning it could do all the stuff my laptop does (in a more portable form).
Best Buy had three units on display. The first one was a Gateway. I ran my finger around the mouse pad, which unintentionally brought up the screen. Oops. The cursor was totally frozen. I did the same to the next one and was greeted with a box explaining there was a network diagnostics error. The third wasn't even turned on -- and I didn't want to try.
My desire for a netbook faded faster than Demi's love for Ashton. If brand new netbooks don't work, how are they going to run after a year or two of use? Can you say total Windows reload?
Have you had better luck with netbooks? Tell me they're not so bad at [email protected]
