I travel a lot with work and geocache (where an outdoors easy access laptop is brilliant). So a netbook seemed the way to go.
I was looking at a lot of different netbooks and then I discovered that Lenovo made one. Being a Lenovo convert (my dad uses them a lot) I decided this would be a good choice. A friend of mine had an S10 which she had broken the webcam (she can't remember what she installed ) so I bought it cheaply off her. I can live without a webcam and everywhere I looked in Australia only sold S10e (I despise glossy screens).
So far it is a great maching. Still fiddling with it and getting things set up properly.
This forum is great. A lot of this stuff is really informative.
