A month or so ago I had a major electronic melt-down at my home. First my Compaq Notebook totally failed, then a few days later my Dell system failed. The good thing was I bought a new 24" iMac. I am still short a notebook and was hopping that Apple will release a less expensive Netbook. If not I guess I will have to go with a MSI Wind or a Dell Mini 9. The rumors say a netbook is possible, but I am not holding my breath.
