Hi usually it's 8GB capacity with some of the netbooks I've seen in Kurrys. 
They are now called internet browsers because that's all you can do with an 
netbook with a 8GB capacity.

  Ah! so flash hard drives replace standard hard drives in these smaller 
machines, does this make the machine more light weight? Is anything else 
affected by using flash drives over hard drives? What kind of capacity is 
usually offered with a flash drive?
  Thanks for any feed back -

    If your going to be moving around a lot when using it and want a fast boot 
up time the Asus netbooks with the flash hard drives may be good.  I don't know 
but I guess they might be quieter too.

      Hi Andy
      Just my own personal thoughts:
      I went for the Asus even though it has a small memory as Steve says. 
Mainly because I don't want it to store files on and with a larger memory I 
felt I might be tempted to do this and slow the whole thing down. Mine is an 
Asus Eee PC 901 and has everything I need - Bluetooth, wireless, memory card 
slot, three USB ports etc. The keys are not too small either. A few things - 
The right hand shift is in a different place, there is no control on the right 
side and the Enter key is not its usual shape. Once you get used to these 
things it is a great little piece of kit. It is practically silent even when 
the fan is going, the speakers are not at all tinny as they were with my larger 
laptop and even with 1GB of RAM it is very fast, especially when on the 
Internet via my wireless connection.
      I got mine on Amazon not Play simply because they had a nice little pink 
one, but I don't suppose that would appeal to you!
      With all the hype about the NC10 on here which would not be as small and 
neat as mine, I just thought it was about time someone spoke up for the poor 
old Asuses!
