    I have an Acer Aspire One netbook and the thing is friggen awesome.

    These netbooks are like a dream come true for PC based robotics, their price is outstanding and they are tiny, perfect for most medium-large mobile robotics bases.

    For some reason it's listed as $329 on their web site but I was just looking at one in the store the day before yesterday and almost bought it for $199.

    Yeah, you can find the 2G Surf all day long for $230... Depends a lot on the model. The 900 for $320 without looking hard.

    I am so thinking those little PCs are the way to go for the kind of stuff I want to do. The less I have to learn the better as I know so little 'bout the bots.

    Read the reviews. Something about there not being enough SSD to start with but it is replaceble.

    Actually - I didn't check to see if that model has an express slot or not. Gotta run to the store before it closes so I can eat today...
