You mean netbooks? They're useful for frequent travelers who don't need a full fledged notebook.

I was thinking of buying one, but the keyboard is a huge turnoff. I need a sturdy full sized keyboard.

I was playing with one at Costco today, And I almost bought one. It"d be pretty handy for school, Whip it out for quick notes, and with SSD's, I wouldn't have to worry about bouncing around and breaking.

I seen one on newegg with 8+ hours of battery life. Thats amazing.

EDIT- The Solid State Drives are small.

They should be. These aren't meant to be your primary computer system.

I was just stating that they're small.
