Netbooks

Anyone have one of those new netbooks? I just go an Acer Aspire and am very happy with it so far. It's a third the size of my four year old HP notebook and the best thing about it is that the operating system is XP and not Vista so I can load all my old apps with no problems including my wifi antenna which does not have drivers for Vista. Only minus is that it does not have a DVD drive so I got an external one which is seldom used. Very happy with the portability, can nearly fit in your pocket (not quite) about twice the size of those Pocketmail things cruisers used to use. Ideal for cruising.
