    Too much HD size?

    "The Pro also comes with a 250GB hard drive to the regular 531's 160GB HDD, but how much storage space do you need in a netbook, for heaven's sake?"

    How much HD space is too much?

    Please do let me know.

    Any word on whether they'd offer it with business class support?

    We get a few people wanting a work-bought netbook for when they go travelling, and Dell have finally caught up and started offering us something viable with a suitable warranty (ie next business day, on site parts & labour, etc). Last time I checked Acer's offering, it was something like a 5-business-day collect-and-return job, which is an instant "no".

    Lost the plot?

    Netbook - cheap, small, light....

    Why bother, at the cost and weight of this one you can get a much better laptop. Marketing seem to be in a little world of their own on the recent 'netbooks'

    Missing 'n'.

    All that extra storage space in a netbook can only mean one thing: this is the Pr0n bersion, not the Pro version.

    Netbook benchmark suggestion ---

    Why not benchmark these netbooks by seeing how many Facebook and MySpace tabs you can simultaneously have open and still get good response.

    And make it a realistic test, with all the standard updates for the O/S, and an up-to-date anti-virus installed.

    If you get a netbook with 1GB of memory you are going to wish you had 2GB of memory by the end of the second week.
