It began thus:

Me: Can I take my laptop on holiday?
DH: (Doesn’t look up from his book) No.
Me: Please?
DH: No.
Me: Pretty please?
DH: No.
Me: Why not?
DH: It’s too heavy for you to carry.
Me: You could carry it….?
DH: No.
Me: Rats…..

Fast forward 2 weeks…..

Me: Netbooks are really small.
DH: (Doesn’t look up from his book) Yes they are.
Me: I could carry a netbook.
DH: I expect you could.
Me: It would save having to print out loads of stuff and taking folders…
DH: (Still reading) That would be a mercy.
Me: And it would stop me from bothering you on the plane..
DH: (Still reading) Okay.
Me: And I wo…….wait……what did you say?…..
DH: I said, okay. You can have a netbook.
Me: :thud:

So I now have this dear little netbook: http://tbn1.google.com/images?q=tbn:VqWJtDeltupfXM:http://blog.pcnews.ro/wp-content/photo/2008/08/__eeepc1000h003.jpg (http://images.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http://blog.pcnews.ro/wp-content/photo/2008/08/__eeepc1000h003.jpg&imgrefurl=http://blog.pcnews.ro/2008/08/17/asus-eee-pc-1000h-80g/&usg=__e0U3NVh0XJGArBeh7acxOjxYg9c=&h=500&w=471&sz=30&hl=en&start=10&tbnid=VqWJtDeltupfXM:&tbnh=130&tbnw=122&prev=/images%3Fq%3DAsus%2BEee%2Bpc%2B1000H%26gbv%3D2%26h l%3Den%26sa%3DG)


And I will be bringing you Live! reports from WDW in September. I’ll try to log in a couple of times a day to post and answer questions too.:mickeybounce:

I have one of those too! I carry it to school as I would never carry my regular laptop to school. It's fabulous isn't it?! I also have the Eee netbooks. I have the 900ha with windows xp on it. I love it!

How long do you get from your battery?
Mine says 7hrs but I'm assuming that real-time use would be less than that.

Actually my eee netbook as a sd card reader, so if her camera takes an sd card then she can just pop it in the eee netbook. Less to pack. :D
