We just settled on a netbook for Tina. The HP Mini 1000:
It may be my last purchase from Circuit City. They had the 1000 for 10% off, so we bit. It’s been quite nice so far. The screen is a little small, but you have to expect that from such a small computer. But it’s just so portable…
It comes with Windows XP and it has a built-in webcam. It doesn’t have a DVD or CD drive, but I could share one from an existing computer if I had to. Or I could get an external drive. It has 2 USB ports, an SD card slot, and Bluetooth and 802.11b/g built in.
I like it. I think it’s a cool little computer. Not the most powerful one on the block, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s mainly used for checking e-mail, MySpace, Facebook, and occasionally playing music. And it does those jobs just fine.
