I am considering getting one of the new Dell netbooks running Ubuntu (don't want one running XP) for just light things and running around when I don't need to bring my MBP. I love my MBP to death (and do carry it around almost every day) but there's a lot of things I don't need to lug it around for. Class notes, short trips, etc. and I've always wanted to try Linux out seriously. I know there's a lot of threads on netbooks in this forum, I just didn't find one about what people use them for, how they like the Mini 9, etc. My other option would be to get something like an upgraded Touch or a Blackberry Bold next year to replace my current Curve. Any thoughts??
