Its alright. If you want a netbook hold out for the new ones coming out after the summer based on the Nvidia Ion platform. They will have dedicated 9400M video.

That'll be a great insight. Well to be honest I need a notebook but also something that I can take with me that isnt bulky and Im always on the run from work to school and so ... I dont spent too much time at home, but I cant afford a notebook and a netbook. I was actually wondering if the mini is what im looking for.

My final conclusion: This **** is worse than Hustler on a date. SLOWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. Takes forever to boot up. Even opening my computer took a while. Keyboard was harder to use then the other laptop keyboards I've used. Personally, I would get a dell latitude c400. Thats the laptop I use for everything and it works amazingly. Old but still kicks more *** than these new pieces of ****.

See post above yours. Kinda like a free phone with cell service contract.

I even thought that you could buy, get service, pay cancellation fee (which I assume is $200) but that will be a lot of hassle to save little cash. If you look at $50 to buy, something for activation ($30-ish) one month service ($50-ish) and $200 fee, you are still looking at $330, but they already knew that when they set these plans up.

My work laptop is a Latitude d430. I like it alot, it's slightly larger than a Netbook ("ultra-portable") and weighs ~3 lbs.

Battery life is pretty good, last over 3 hours with WiFi enabled.
