Currently I have a 4 year old Toshiba Laptop (bought as a graduation present) and a desktop I built [edit: a friend built, he might be on here to correct me haha]on newegg that I make upgrades to as I need to (working great and does everything I need it to). The laptop I have has a bad battery that's been broken for about a year now. Basically it just won't hold any kind of charge, the minute you unplug the power cord the laptop goes black and turns off. It's got a 15.4" screen and is pretty bulky/heavy for my taste. When I bought it it was my main computer but now that I have the desktop I rarely use it because the battery is shot. I've been looking into these netbooks recently because of their small size and relative low power. I do some traveling and will be doing some military training for 4 months where I can have a laptop with me. I do not want to take this toshiba and obviously can't to bring my desktop. Basically my question is, what do you guys know/think about the netbooks that are out right now. If I'm looking to spend <$400 for something small and portable, is it worth it? Like I said my desktop is more than efficiant for running any/all programs/software I need and the only thing I would use the netbook for would be internet/email and the occasional word document on the go. Also what to do with my current laptop? I don't see myself investing any more money into it (buying a new battery) since even with a working battery it is too big for my needs. Do you think I could get a decent price for it on craigslist? ebay? OT YS? Where is the best place? Help me out! Thanks guys!!
