Iâ€™m on the hunt for a Netbook. I got a few â€œBest Buyâ€ gift cards at Christmas, so Iâ€™m limited in that respect to what they carry. But I held off on the HP Mini 1000 because of its low life battery (3-cell and only 2+ hours), and the uncertainty about how it might work with a AT&T data plan that I might want the option of getting in the future. (Itâ€™s hidden, unadvertised â€œSIM slotâ€ but lack of a 3G modem is also confusion) Also, since the CES show just ended and many up and coming models were revealed, I didnâ€™t want to be sorry I pulled the trigger too soon. Any hints/advice/suggestions anyone out there might have would be valued. I hope to have one before the end of the first week in March.
(I may well have bought the HP if not for the 3-cell battery. I rather like the idea of being able to stay powered for a full dayâ€™s mobile access and charge it each night. )
