Default Re: Netbook going to cut it?

Make sure you go for some thing with 10" display. I orginally had a Acer Aspire One with an 8.9" display. I found the keypad and mouse extremely small to work with. Now i am on a Lenovo IdeaPad s10. I am extremely happy with the size of the keypad and mouse.


Main Rig - AMD FX-8350x8 4.0Ghz CPU, 4x 8Gb (32Gb) DDR3 Ram, Gigabyte GA-970A-D3, GeForce GT 970 4Gb, 1x 256Gb SSD\8Tb (3+2+2+1) SATA HDD, DVDRW, SB X-Fi, Win 10 (64-bit)
Asus N61JV-JX231V - Intel Core i5 3437u (1.9 - 2.4 GHz), 12GB, 640GB, 16" Display, nVidia 325M 1Gb, DVD-RW, Win 10 (64-bit)

May i suggest waiting for Lenovos Ion version of their S12 netbook which will have a significantly faster Via chip (faster than the Atoms), plus the added bonus of a 9 series video card.

I currently have an MSI wind u100, bought it awhile back and I love it. I mostly use it when i'm out and about or when i'm in my room since my desktop is downstairs. It's great for just simple everyday things. I tend to watch a lot of you tube on it since when i use VLC it lags wayyyy to much, thats the only down side I've had with mine. Make sure you browse around since their are quite a few out there that are pretty good.

CPU: Q6600 2.8ghz for the time being
GPU: VisionTek Radeon HD 4850 512MB
HDD: Barracuda 250GB
PSU: Rosewill Stallion Series RD600N
