Hi Steve -

I've lost access to my desk top machine, and the saved messages, so was going 
from memory and clearly getting mixed up with what you said you prefered in the 
netbook range.

What I am looking for is something with more than 4 hours battery life, and 
that has wireless and Bluetooth capabilities. It doesn't have to have a hard 
drive, but would need to be able to take a 16 SDHC mem card. Incidentally, for 
netbooks that don't come with hard drives, where does installed software 
reside? I've never had a machine without an HD! -

  Hi Andy,

  You haven't been reading my messages <Smile>  I don't like the Asus range, 
not enough storage.  I prefer the MSI Wind, even over the Samsung Netbook.  it 
has a nicer keyboard, and the right shift is in the right place, an annoyance 
to me with the Samsung.   The other thing about the Samsung is that you have to 
press the FN key with the shift key if you want a colon, otherwise you seem to 
get a dash.  'orrible machine.

  Sorry Jackie, I don't like it <Smile>.

  All the best
