I've been thinking about getting a portable computer recently. In considering what I need, I realized that about all I use my computer for on a regular basis is internet and Office.
With that in mind, it seems like a netbook would be a good choice.
But where to start?
Looking around Newegg, I'm familiar with some brands (Asus and I have always gotten along), but I seem to remember reading somewhere awhile back that the companies that have typically dominated the desktop/laptop market have been slow to embrace netbooks and many of the smaller companies have specialized in netbooks and have better products.
Another question is how much RAM is enough? I see many of these netbooks starting at 1 GB, but the reviews frequently suggest upgrading to 2 GB. Given most of them have Win 7 as their OS, and Windows is known for having a large memory footprint, what's left if I only get 1 GB?
Any thoughts? I'd like to get one here in very short order! (Preferably before Naka on the 18th!)
