    I wonder how many will keep the netbook ... I can't stand the keyboard on any of them.

    This part is interesting as well:

    The new Dell 11z looks nice and you're getting a cut down Core 2 instead of Atom. Lots more power there and the GS45 handles video hardware acceleration too.

    It's no ION but it's cheap.

    When was the last time you actually tried a current netbook's keyboard? There has been a concious effort by manufacturers to address the market.

    I try them every time I see them at the store - it would be nice to just throw it in my assault pack.

    glad i'm not in the majority. starting graduate school this fall and got my uMBP 13" in July.

    been a PC user all my life and finally made the switch - never ever ever looking back. yes, we're poor college students, but the extra $ spent on a mac is damn damn worth it =). It's called a summer job! ppl need to stop being lazy and get one!
