Loc: Syracuse, NY
I am normally an impulse buyer. But I looked at many netbooks before deciding on the wind. Main reasons being the screen is 10" and the keyboard is larger than most. I was close to going with the Dell mini 9 for the girls until I saw the wind.
I was thinking on getting one of those. But then I decided to reach over and grab the sharp stick next to me and stick it in my eye instead.
Actually, I was looking at one to use for my league secretary bowling software, no Mac alternative. Small enough to carry into the lanes, the program I run is only in a small window, and I would have access to any reports, no need to carry the yearly stat sheets. I got a chance to play with one, it would be fast enough for the program I use, but I don't know how good of an Internet experience it would be, let us know.
I'll still probably end up doing Boot Camp on a MacBook but it was a thought.
i guess at $350 that is a darn good deal. i think the only thing that would keep me from having my kids use it is the Windows part (they get that at school and that's far too much as it is -- heh). they don't sell the Winds with Linux, which would reduce the cost $75 or so. that would be ideal.
