Netbooks and Portability

Last weekend I went into RadioShack and grabbed one of the Acer Aspire One Netbooks for $99.00.

Yes, I already have a few other Asus and even a original release Aspire One from six months or so back, but this one is different. It has 3G inside and works on HSDPA via AT&T. Add in a two year data contract and my price all in is $1,500.00 which for the Mobile Me is about right.

The netbooks are clearly here to stay. GigaOm reports that sales of them have outpaced laptops, with the only major laptop maker missing from the picture being Apple currently.

The reason I like these small and nifty PCs is really simple. They're light. Easy to carry and they do it all. And, now with 3G they make it really easy to stay, connected.
