    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: [​IMG]


    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.
