Netbooks (Score: 1) by email@example.com on 2014-09-18 09:59 (#2SJC) Dammit, forgot to add netbooks. I had a great one I bought from System76 in 2009 and I liked it a lot. Hardware finally died, but I'd take a netbook over almost any other device at this point: I'm no fan of Ultrabooks, my Chromebook is great but not as great as my netbook, and I could add a GSM modem to make it into an internet device usable miles-from-nowhere.Ballmer can kiss my ass for helping destroy the netbook because it threatened his empire. I wish companies were still making them. Maybe I should look into a used one on ebay but you never know what you're getting there.

I have wide hands and most netbooks made me feel like I had huge sausage fingers.
