First, thanks for coming on my weblog. I really appreciated it.
The netbook: you know it's a compromise. Everything one does in travel becomes compromise, except the reason for the trip. So, little tubes of toothpaste are not a problem. But little mice and keyboards can get to you.
Still, I am very happy I did it. On the plane for 6 hours, I could watch some videos I keep on my Passport 320gig portable HDD. My room at my daughter's home in Los Angeles has a really tiny desk, so, you know, it all works out.
Some things, you know you walk into the store or you see an article or review, and you know that's it!! All I was trying to buy when I saw the Acer was to get a 100 pack of DVD-R blanks for approx US$22.00. I knew the PIII was on its last legs, so this was on my mind. I walked past this display. The Acer and an HP. The HP had these weird ports. Then I read the Acer specs on the card and saw the price.
I went to five stores. All sold out. I wonder why!! So, I ordered it on line from FRYE's, a west coast retailer, for two day delivery.
They way it is set up now, it is fine at home. Then, I just pull the unit and the power supply. I have the original tiny Logitech mouse and the neat Targus numeric keypad I bought before attaching the keyboard all packed in the computer's bag.
So, happy you liked the snap.
