One of the worst buys ever
Netbooks are highly portable; for me, that is about the only good thing about one. I was looking for a very portable laptop; this isn't it. Poor processing power, anemic audio (my pda has better sound!), inadequate, outdated video, temperamental touchpad, not enough memory. Slow internet speeds, screen size is just awkward for doing anything useful. Does very little well.
Some of these problems may be brand specific--I got an Asus which I would not recommend to anyone--but the processor, memory and video are pretty typical, and pretty minimal. I upgraded the memory, which contrary to all the reviews I read, did NOT help--so in addition to all the other inadequacies, I may just have gotten a lemon.
DO think carefully about what you want it for; they have their uses, but are very limited (& limiting) if any of your expectations or your applications are at all demanding.
