    I usually rely on my Macbook Pro for mobile computer, but this weekend I picked up an Acer One laptop. There are so many occasions where I need to check email, ftp something to the forums, vpn into the carwash network, etc and this little bugger is PERFECT! It's basically a netbook...here are the specs:

    This ultra-portable laptop is the ideal traveling companion that lets you take the Internet on the road without the heavy load. The Intel Atom Processor combines performance, power and efficiency to explore the Internet and stay connected while on-the go. Windows XP Home Edition lets you surf the Internet, edit documents and photos and read email.



    Key Features & Benefits:

    Intel Atom processor N270

    1.60 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, 512 KB L2 cache

    8.9" WSVGA high-brightness Acer CrystalBrite TFT LCD

    Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950

    1024MB DDR 533MHz Dual Channel Memory

    Use multiple applications without a decrease in performance

    120GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive

    Store large video files, music, photos, documents and more on this expansive drive

    Additional Features

    If you have an aircard or a phone that supports teathering...you're in heaven. Oh btw...price...how does $298 sound?

    Was your Macbook just to big and cumbersome?

    Compared to the Acer, yes. Plus I feel more comfortable traveling with a $300 laptop vs a $2400 one.

    The only thing I am paranoid of is the built in web cam and mic.
