Adrian 

my information and statements are based on the information I gather, notices I 
receive and etc off the 14 or 15 lists I am on. 

and even with your added data, I still say that if it fits the need well 
enough, then netbooks are fine, period end of quote. 

and since the person who asked the question originally has already clarified 
that he can only "trade" his unit, and does not have the cash to upgrade to a 
laptop even if it better fits his needs, your and mister C's lines are 
superfluous aren't they. 

I wish you would just quit any sort of attention to me, but it looks like 
neither one of us is going to get there wish. 

there are several people who if they had said that I would retract my statement 
and thank them for there updated info, but he isn't, and you especially are 
not! among them!

you earn my respect, I don't give it out freely, that's a waist of effort and 
mental energy most times. 

hope you know what G.F.I.D. means!

  Yesterday you dismissed what Charles said about netbooks. This morning the 
Wall Street Journal confirmed that netbook production is down. Now you're 
saying "Don't pay attention" to his experience? You have a lot to contribute, 
but you're also often wrong.  I wish you'd show more respect.

  Like other persons in this list have already stated. Look for one without 
crap software. If your options are limited, go with one that 1 have a 
comfortable keyboard to type. That includes all the keys you want. 2 Try to get 
one wiout crap software like hp media, hp security, sony disk whatever. The 
less software instal on it, the better. and 3, try to look for one with at 
least a 2GB ram and an intel procesor. AMD is great, but they eat your battery 
like there is no tomorrow.

  any suggestions on wich net books to look for, I was looking at a toshiba 
cause it has the home key end page up and down. But I was going to try to 
install jaws on there demo to test it. By the way any suggestions on how to get 
jaws on it. I don't have experience with a thumb drive. so I thought put jaws 
on it then uninstall it. Thanks Carlos

  On a netbook you have to use the function key and arrow key and some other 
combination get the page up, page down, and others like that. Also you will 
have to set jaws to a laptop keyboard. It is a learning curve.

  Hi list, My name is Carlos I am new to the list. I use to post once in a 
while years ago. Well I just bought a net book. my sighted friend hlped me buy 
it. Its an hp net book from best buy. Since I never had a net book i did not 
know what to look for. The first thing was that when the computer was turnd on 
it did not go in to windows right away instead showing some hp media thing. I 
prbably could not hae figuered ou what was going on if not for my sighted 
friend setting it up.o then i found the insert but worked as a print screen 
first and as an insert only in conjction of pressing the function ke. Thats not 
good with jaws. Now i just have fond out it doesn have a home page up page down 
or end key. I took it to best buy and they are goig to let me exchange it for 
another on i have had it for mor thann a month so they are making an exception 
to there rulesbecause the naure of the situation. if any one has had prolems 
with net books like this or has any suggestions on specific brands like please 
let me know.Its a nice netbook but i don't think i could get uso not having a 
home key or page upor page dow or end. thanks for any help. The sales person in 
best buy suggested toshiba net books but i don't know. Thaks Carlos
