Sooooooo, I've got a 12" powerbook with 1.25gb ram and 1.5 ghz and about a 2hr battery life. I also have an iMac for everyday use. I mostly use this guy when i travel, such as movies on the plane, and in the living room to check fantasy baseball while watching real baseball on TV. I could probably get $400-$500 after fees on ebay or about that on craigslist, so it would be about an even trade My goals are much better battery life, smaller and thinner (powerbook is 1.2 in thick and 4.5 lbs) Ubuntu on a netbook looks nice. i am just having a hard time getting rid of this beauty. Anyone else switch to a netbook? Any suggestions on which to get? I like Lenovo as a brand so the S10 and the eee 1000HE seem like my top choices.
