Anyone have a mini laptop?

I want to get one. Mostly because DH has my iBook with him out of state all the time and i want to have a laptop at home too. All it would be for is internet and word processing programs. I'm just wondering if it's worth $300 bucks for a 1 gig computer!

Opinions on them?

  • It's not bad I have a Dell mini and it does what I need it to.

  • I have an Acer Mini and I LOVE IT. I haven't turned on my big dell laptop since I bought it. Of course, I don't use it at home as I have an awesome desktop. I do bring the mini everywhere, it fits in my bag. I use it at school, Doctor appointments, I use it in the car sometimes, and well it is just so convenient. Mine as a 120 gig hard drive. It was only $298 at Walmart last year.

  • I love my Dell netback! It's lightweight and very, very portable. We use it as a GPS when we travel - I put up our route in mapquest and refer to it as necessary while on the road.
