Yes, it's new to me.

edit: but it's a used machine.

OK, I see. Because for the price of a new netbook there would be better options in the 10 inch league.

I refurb these puppies. It's not for me. Once I sold an HP G72, and a week later the video died. It had done a similar momentary lapse like this machine, and memories of that are what this is kicking up.

I see. I was just wondering why someone would buy a Netbook these days.

What do you like, tablets?

I personally am not really a fan of tablets. But they are handy at times. I use my Nexus 7 sparingly and mostly for navigation, trip planning and free calls from Europe to the US.

For the wife I just got this little guy. She wanted something a bit more familiar.

But we only use those during travel. At home I like my desktops and the big screens. The wife prefers laptops - that she never moves. My laptop gets little use. I used to use it for teaching at our local computer club. But I gave that up.

I admit I'm not a tablet guy either. That's why I think netbooks are great for students and others. I'm sorry to see them going. I may be missing something about the benefit of the evolving tastes in portables, or maybe the market's being manipulated in order to keep demand up. The heavy handed changes of Win8's front end to me are a case in point

I think the changes come about by the young generation. They are more consumption oriented than willing to create something. And for that the new portable devices are good enough. But if you need to do any serious work, tablets are pretty useless. Not so much because of their specs, because they are getting pretty powerful, but because of their human factors - small screen, difficult input options, not many attachment possibilities for external devices.

True. I have to admire tablets for what they do. Remarkable engineering. But to get anything done, I'll go with a desktop/laptop/netbook at this point. I sold a netbook to a friend for her daughter. She was on it 24/7 for two years. Now it collects dust because of her new ipad jr. What does she do on it? Chat with her friends all day.

Yeah, the babble generation. One day they will have to implant chips where we have a brain.
