Netbook is excellent choice11/16/2009
Love my MSI Wind Netbook. I was carrying a heavy IBM ThinkPad in my backpack and it would feel like an anchor after my 6-mile bike to work. Switched to the WIND, it is faster, weighs 1/3 as much, and fits in a smaller bike bag. I test drove several competitors, Acer, Dell, HP, etc., didn't like the feel of the hinges or the keyboard nearly as well as the MSI. The keyboard is definitely the fastest for note taking in meetings. I carry a BlackBerry as well, but it's too slow to be as effective as a word processor in those situations. The Atom processor is as fast as my 2.4 processor on my laptop. If portability, ease of use, and longer battery life are part of your requirements, I recommend this one 100%. It has worked perfectly since the day I took it out of the box.
