Geek Stuff

Cynthia recently turned me on to some information about netbooks and about Ubuntu.  I checked out the Dell Insprion Mini online today, it's a cool little machine for less than $3oo.  Considering I do most of my work online and could store most of my info on a external drive or online this seems like a good solution for me.  I like that these are small machines and very portable.  4 hrs battery life is okay, there are some netbooks out there with up to 9 I've read.  If any one out there has a net book or is running Ubuntu leave me a comment.  I'd like to know how you like it.
