RE: Attractive or repulsive netbooks with JAWS?

Hi Dale, 

I have had good experience with Jaws on an Inspiron Mini.  If you're an
Eloquence user (vs. SAPI5), then the performance is very quick.  It has
enough USB ports to handle a Braille display (and I know that a new Braille
display specifically designed for netbooks is on the way).  The keyboard is
nice (of course no number pad), but the arrow keys are arranged like other
Dell computers, on the bottom left.  And has a full set of Function keys,
Ctrl, Fn, Win, and Alt to the left of Space.  Alt, AppKey, and Ctrl to the
right of Space.  The build in speakers are fine for speech and audio books.

Ciao, Mark

Subject: Attractive or repulsive netbooks with JAWS?

I'm thinking of trying a netbook so that I can enjoy the warmer weather
outside and still have my head stuck in cyberspace.

Have folks found specific brands or models notably attractive with
regard to keyboards, built-in sound, etc. using JAWS?

TIA
