    Marie had one with her in FL . I loved how tiny and efficient it was as far as traveling . Besides the new cell phones, I didn't know there was one up from a cell size . :lol: Very Cool, foreverducky .

    It's so small Johnie, it really is like the size of a hard back book.

    It's a little tiny, but I will either get use to it or by one of those flexible keyboards. Either way it will work.

    I know going from my desktop to my laptop was quite simple...so maybe it's just a learning curve of sorts...

    Either way, if I purchased it for Baleigh....her hands are TEENY TINY!

    I think I'll be able to adapt, but it will take a little bit. And with the price is such a good deal. I gotten on the net with it and it works great, the screen is only 8.9 but it seems perfect for what I need.

    hey no problem at all. I am thrilled to have found this puppy and think it's going to be a great thing for school, as i can type a lot faster than I can write (i am a product of my generation).

    I'm just so amazed at how small it is and the sleeve it comes with is nice. I will just need to but the charger in a baggie. Also, I do get about the five hours of battery life, which is amazing

    Update: I have taken it to school and used in my classes. The battery does last a long time and I have no troubles at all typing on it. I type in Microsoft Works and then just save it to my zip drive as a Word 2003 program. As I sit close to the door I everyone saying "ooohhh, isn't that cute" and "boy, that sure is smaller than my big laptop." I've gotten nothing but compliments and questions about it.

    Really great to hear it's worked out as you intended :) I went to pcworld to have a play last weekend and they were great. Keyboards not NEARLY as bad to type on as some reviews said
