    NO WAY! I've seen my fare share of netbooks and I haven't been impressed by anyone of them…mostly because they are all over-loaded with windows on a small computer that can't really handle that much software on a small atom processor. Also, the fact that it's a cheap(quality and price) version of a regular notebook/laptop just ruins the cool/fun factor of owning one. It's not like one will go, "Oh, I think I'm going to bust out my netbook to have fun with it!" I have never seen even 1 netbook that impressed me!

    The thing that I noticed is that there are indeed netbooks that have more ram and a faster atom processor, which would make it seem like it would be fast on paper, or at least give you acceptable performance…unfortunately, that's not the case. Here, though, you get the A4 that is 1ghz and is blazing fast because it is all designed to WORK TOGETHER…something that M$ needs to figure out…or not

    Why are you asking?

    Black Macbook C2D 2GHz 3GB RAM 250GB HD iPhone 4 iPad 3G
    Let's see, beautiful and highly functional tablet to complement my desktop and laptop, or a painfully slow, poorly designed (netbook keyboards feel like they're designed for children rather than adults) and inelegant netbook that I would have absolutely zero use for since I already have a very capable laptop. Yes, I can see why this would be a hard choice...

It has a built in camera. It's certainly not as glamorous as the iPad. Just a matter of what you want or need (?). I've got a 3G coming this week but, having not used it yet, there's no real to die for purpose for it. So far, the Asus would appear more functional to me. Perhaps my view will change once I get the iPad. I think netbooks were a good idea. I remember being excited when I first got it. Things have a way of losing their luster after a short while. Love is the only thing that endures, and it never fails.

    Well, I don't think my Asus 1000H is amazing or beautiful. Nope. And certainly not incredible. .

    Apparently, the iPad that's coming will be. Of course, I would settle for just - well - wonderful.

    I have a Dell mini netbook. I use it only for keeping my journal. Other than that I use my Macbook pro. There is no comparison

    Actually, I would like to slightly retract my hate for netbooks. I like them a lot for one reason…and this is enough for me to have one. I like being able to use it just so I can have something to download material(music, files, and such), without worring that something will get a virus…M$…arghhh…that is too important to get ruined by the virus.
    I think netbooks are good for downloading files…simply put.

    No, But I did sell my iPad. I would never buy another Netbook like Kash said it's keyboard is something designed for children, But I guess for $299 you get what you pay for.

    For now I'll stick with my Macbook Pro.

    I didn't like typing on it, Also didn't like always having to hold it up with one hand. It's nice because it's small,light weight and doesn't get hot like my Macbook Pro.

    I gave it a shot.

    Interesting. I mean I heard mixed reviews about typing/handling the iPad, but none of the reviewers were upset with it to the point of returning it.

    I personally don't have one yet, that will happen soon. I did however get a chance to play with one at the Apple Store and it was a fairly pleasant experience.

    Anyone else that share the same opinion?
