The last few weeks of carrying a backpack that weighed more than my 2 year old son convinced me to get one. I have been looking at the various netbooks popping up in every store that sells electronics.

I had not previously bought one due to high prices or contracts needed to get one with 3g.
While in Walmart I saw one for a great price, $278, and I couldn't pass it up.

It's Acer Aspire One with windows Xp, 160gb hard drive one gig ram... I'll let walmart tell ya the specs

I got it to take the place of my HP N6000 Laptop when I go to work etc. But, other than missing a cd drive, and blutooth, it is just as fast as my full sized lappy. I think I may get rid of my Hp (I could use the cash) and use the netbook as my primary pc for awhile.

The only complaint I have is the trackpad. It's a bit to touchy for my taste, i remedy this by using a usb mouse. The small screen and keyboard aren't an issue for me.

The battery life is AMAZING. The LED backlit screen is bright, the wifi can see more access points than my HP.

I does come with alot of bloatware. the games are all trials, as is office 07 and mcafee. I had a key for office, deleted the games, and replaced mcafee with avast.

I can even play pirates online with it with no issues.

(leans on walker) I remember the days when the Commodore 64 was the bees knees.
Nice!, it workin well? thinking bout selling this on my store, but waiting till i get the visitors going before i bother getting it all listed.

Im still trying to understand why they sell them so cheap. What is the real diff between that and a full blown lappy?
It has replaced my notebook full time.

I use all the programs I used on my full sized and have no issues.

I picked up a dvd burner external usb for anything I want to burn or put on the netbook. I use it for Mobile DJ'ing without issue, the dobly output from the headphones are great. The built in speakers are kinda of weak but that's to be expected.

The one I have is now old news. the new ones have 2 gigs of ram and a 250gig hd...want.
