The Siren Call of Technology...

I did it. I bit the bullet.
I need a new laptop but I'm definitely waiting for Windows 7.
Soooooo, in the meantime, I bought a netbook.

ASUS Eee PC 1000HE 10-Inch Netbook (1.66 GHz Intel Atom N280 Processor, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB Hard Drive, 10 GB Eee Storage, Bluetooth, XP Home, 9.5 Hour Battery Life) Black

What is bigger than a blackberry, smaller than a laptop, can run faster and actually has more storage space than my current, rapidly-aging computer? Why, it's a NETBOOK!

The word netbook is a portmanteau of the words Internet and notebook. Primarily designed for web browsing and emailing, they rely on the mainly web based programs, are between 5 inches and 13, weigh between 2 and 3 pounds, have no optical disc drive, and cost far less than a laptop. Not really designed to replace a main computer, this is a great, ultra portable addition.

A Netbook Haiku
My heart is still pounding.
I wish it would arrive tomorrow.
I can barely contain my glee!

How do you like it so far? I love blogging with my feet up on the couch, not plugged in because the battery's still good.
