I like to recommend the best tool for the job. If a netbook is in order, then I would recommend the ThinkPad X120e. Scott.

If that thing has an anti-glare screen, gigabit Ethernet, HDMI video, up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a spill-resistant keyboard, bluetooth, downloadable service and parts manuals, and a Trackpoint (UltraNav) pointing device, then I'd definitely recommend it! If not, then strike that, reverse it... <g> Scott.

Would this netbook run Windows 7 poorly anyhow? After all, it has a single-core processor.

It might do OK if it had more than 1GB of RAM. I'd recommend at least 2GB and preferably 4GB. Scott.
