Default Re: Cheap Netbook

those cheap netbooks are terrible for most computer tasks. The keyboards are tiny, the OS isn't changeable and most of the parts inside HDD, ram etc are non upgradable and the processors are very low spec. I would much rather buy an acer aspire one D250 which now go for about $220 for the xp version. That wouldn't be a bad netbook if it had something like android on it.

Netbooks, big and small, are meant for reading e-mails and writing word documents. Mobility and battery power is the point, not for heavy use.

I have a ASUS Eee 1005HA, and I already added 2GB ram to it, and installed Win 7 from an external dvd-rw.

Since when is the OS not changeable? I have done it by hooking up an external dvd drive that I threw together.

My point exactly. It's not that hard.
