Another point I am not sure that you covered in your blog is that a
netbook is absolutely not a notebook, the screen and keyboard are too
small to make them an effective learning tool. They also have a
reputation for being very slow especially with Win XP/7 and antivirus
software. This issue has been covered in APC technology mag in the
context of business productivity but the same applies to kids. The
times I have used them I get eye strain and cramped shoulders from the
tiny screen keyboard and mouse pad.
You are welcome to add this to your blog, I could not log in.
