    We are just starting to bring netbooks into our district and really appreciated your Acer review. Your feedback is going to assist us greatly in our decision as we move forward. Thank you!

  2. Thanks for your comment, Cathy. We, too, are evaluating the utility of these light weight computing devices as well. In a week or two we'll have an HP 2140 (10") screen in to demo. I think the 10" screen is the "sweet spot in this space...I believe Acer is discontinuing their 8.9" model at some point soon and will be refreshing it with a 10".

    Let's stay in touch and compare notes.
