Well I am not sure a netbook is so bad, first of all is more portable but
still lets you type at a normal speed. And also and more importantly it also
have the most appreciated 10hr battery life which is enough to go a whole
day without looking for a power chord/socket.

I am seriously considering it for my international traveling and
presentations. At the end of the day my netbook has surpass the usability of
my big powerful laptop the same way the big powerful laptop replaced my
bigger powerfuler (is this a word?) workstation.

And you get a much more complete Office suite in :)
