One thought on “Netbook Advice

    I’ve had my Asus Eee netbook for over a year now and I love it. Also, I wrote an article on Netbooks for the July/August 2009 issue of Digital Genealogist magazine (the magazine has since stopped publication). I can send you a copy of the article if you contact me.

    I went with the Asus (not Acer, Asus) for these reasons:

    – the battery is 9.5 hours
    – the keyboard is 93% the size of a normal laptop keyboard
    – it has 3 usb ports
    – I can run PowerPoint presentations for my lectures while connected to an LCD projector
    – it weighs just 3 lbs

    I use it when researching on the road as well. Can you tell how much I love it? Also, I purchased mine on Amazon which doesn’t charge sales tax (at least not here in Chicago where our tax is 9.75%) and includes free shipping. Their prices are competitive with Best Buy where most of my colleagues have purchased their netbooks.
