Hi guys, I am looking at netbooks currently, and the only thing that concerns me... is.... well.... porn... :p

How do the current generation of Netbooks perform with porn? Flash videos fullscreen, specifically.

Thanks! :cool:

I recommend iPad with Air Video. :cool:
I'm not questioning your expertise (I noticed your avatar), but I'm just thinking that you need at least one hand for obvious reasons... You need another to hold the iPad... That's it - you get what you see. Whereas if you had a netbook, that can be controlled with the other hand. I'm thinking switching windows, fast-forward, pause, various tricks that people do during porn and I have absolutely no knowledge of whatsoever. None.

It would have been more appropriate to ask how flash works, or what ever other platforms your content maybe using.

Some people are incredibly prude. Porn and netbook. The last time porn was associated with the iPad, hundreds went on about it. Even *LTD* was going like a five years old high on sugar.

It's a shame that most porn sites use Flash in various forms. So, netbooks should be fine for porn.

I mean, come on, what do you think 'Private browsing' is mostly used for?! You buy birthday present to your wife once in two years. How often do you watch porn on the internet? There you go... (but don't!)

I have an old (in the scheme of notebooks) MSI Wind u90, and it handles porn fullscreen flawlessly, specifically ********* (my personal favorite; iPhone friendly, too.

Why exactly is this thread under Apple Hardware?

Not being a prude, it just seems more like a community thing.

"coke" ya right. I just plugged in my iPhone and was sipping on a pepsi (someoe left it at my apartment) after having the terror of not being able to find my iPhone this morning and now this thread has me cracking up.

"my friend told me he knows some sites that are iPhone friendly so I'm sure they'll work for an iPad and a netbook" ya my friend........

I concur with the iPad suggestion....

especially easy to use on the bus. Don't have to wait for boot up time etc so you can really make the most of the moment

More places are converting to html5... but...
A netbook can be had for around 200 bucks. I'd really hate for an iPad to be somehow damaged from an errant "money shot". Netbooks are disposable.

Tissues fall apart with thicker liquids. Recommend bounty or brawny paper towels

Recommend the netbook. The screen is more easily views and doesn't need anything extra for the screen to be at the optimum angle
