    I wondered how these would be to use. Let us know how you like it at your shows. I'm afraid I wouldn't like the keyboard.

    My DH got me a 17" Dell for mother's day last year and I love it. Then I saw those mini's and thought they would be perfect to pack around and especially to shows. I love my Dell and absolutely love being able to directly enter orders into P3. You'll love it too...especiall with 10 shows coming up!!! It makes check out much quicker and more efficient.

    I've had a mini for about 2 months and was going to post an update today...then I saw your thread, so I'm posting here.

    I love my netbook (Acer) and wouldn't give it up, but there are limitations. I specifically bought it to use at shows and for the internet while traveling...which is about all it can handle. There is only 3GB of memory, so once you add on P3 and a thorough security program like Norton, it starts to run very slow. I find I still use my desktop for all my document management.

    (If there are computer geeks here who can advice otherwise, please jump in.)

    exactly the same for me. I think it actually runs a little slow to do right at shows.

    I was looking at the Dell 10" but I didn't purchase one because of the limitations on memory. The one on woot! would be even worse with only 512mb of RAM-- unless there is an op to upgrade or add memory on your own, P3 will probably not even work on it. And only 4GB of memory? Yikes! I would have to take a hard drive with me where ever I went!

    Of course, if you are buying it just to have around, it would be a good toy, but will be slow.

    Actually just bought my son a new Dell with 6GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive. Along with a 1 TB Portable Hard Drive You get spoiled, you know?

    I also prefer an Intel Dual Core processor. HATE AMDs! I have only owned one in my lifetime and will NEVER do that again!

    Yes, I am a techy...I have a degree in MIS (computer science).
