Acer Aspire One Netbook

A few months ago I replaced my usual spiral notebook with an Acer Aspire One netbook. I'm usually out and about when I feel like jotting things down, hence the spiral notebook, but I type *whey* faster than I write. Now I can whip out an under-a-kilo dinky laptop and take notes, without having to clear off a swath of table space.

It's perfect for working with text, taking grubby webcam clips, tuning-in to Pandora, late-night ssh connections to the office -- simple stuff. Keep your MacBook Pro for the heavy stuff ... but keep it at home!

Case-Mod Tip: To dress it up, I found (after much sticky trial and error) that printing graphics on premium photo paper and then using "photo mount" spray adhesive to attach it to the case works nicely.

These little guys are really attractive. And I like your skinning process - it looks good in the photo. The idea of a one-kilo notebook is very attractive. My TabletPC was nice, but its screen has gone kaflooey so I can no longer draw on the screen. (I know these other little guys are not touch-screen.) Acer is really on the right track.
