HP Mini 110-3510NR

HP Mini 110-3510NR Netbook (Black)
This is my newest toy. It's an itty-bitty HP netbook. It's so small, it's only got a 10.1- inch screen. I've got bigger books.

Why would I want something this small?

I've already got a great big HP laptop that weighs a ton. Mainly, I got tired of lugging that heavy thing around everywhere I go.

I've also got an HP computer at home, and an old Mac. My home HP is generally my main writing computer, and the Mac I use for some writing but mostly for graphic design work.

My new HP mini netbook has size, weight and portability in its favor. Sure, it's not the most powerful computer around, but it works great for writing and is fine for most of my Internet habits. When I go to a Web page that has lots of photo images or videos, my netbook does tend to bog down, but I consider that a good thing because it'll help to keep me off the Web, thus helping me from being distracted when I'm writing.

Now I can carry a computer with me everywhere I go. And I probably will. You never know when you'll get the urge to write something.

Heck, now I can even go out to one of the old barns behind my place and write.

When my wife is using our laptop, and I'm too lazy to go downstairs for our desktop Mac, and the font on the iTouch is too small for my night-tired eyes ... I sometimes think about adding a netbook to the arsenal. ;)
