OK. I indulged somewhat, but I am really enjoying the Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 that I picked up through AT&T with the data plan. It has the benefits of being about as portable as an iPad or other tablet, but with a full blown version of Windows 7, a really sharp screen, 250GB hard drive and 2GB of RAM. Plus the benefits of Wireless-N or 3G internet access. Overall, I can do all that I would do on a tablet plus almost all I would do on my desktop. About the only thing I won’t do on the netbook is serious gaming, heavy duty application development or high end photo editing. Screen and memory sizes are really too small for major work in those areas.
I am so geeked out about having this, that I am transferring all my data and regular apps to it. This will be my primary PC from here on out. Or at least for the foreseeable future. Expect more blogging for sure.
