Sadly, that isn't true of the ASUS netbooks. When I retired the one I had because the wires going through the hinge to the display started acting up and I needed an upgrade anyway, I had to remove the keyboard to salvage the HDD from it. Never did figure out how to do so without destroying the keyboard so I just went ahead an destroyed it. Cleaning wouldn't have been any better.

Yes well I have no time for those Lady F I think they are handy ok but in my mind a throw away item I wouldn't even bother. I have set a few up and boy it is tedious and you need to be a midget to use it and I ain't a big person

Yep the last one I did was for a friends daughter who was going to Darwin which you may know is very humid country and as I am working with her tonight (her Mum) I must see how it went mind you she is a pretty careful sort of person.

I suppose they have their place at least they are better than those (in my mind) dumb hand-held tablets. My son has forsaken his $3K build for one and I keep hinting that he should let me look after it for him - the build not the hand held LOL!!

You got that right! Tablets also have their place but not for me.
