Why not have all 3? I do.

I prefer the netbook for traveling, being smaller and lighter.

Use both the desktop and notebook when I'm home.

I must admit I am getting sorely tempted by the new core i7 notebooks.... maybe it's time to upgrade... LOL

Gotta admit, I'm getting tempted to get one of the new netbooks that Apple will release next year. 17" MacBook pro for now.

for best performance per $$$ go desktop, also make upgrading a lot easier. evaluate your needs for the other two based on on weight you can tolerate to lug around when you travel. new intel i7 core notebooks are looking nice right now.

Netbooks make a nice traveling/sitting on the deck machine.

The Atom processor however- leaves much to be desired speedwise.

But I reformatted the drive, and put Ubuntu Linux on it, and it is so much faster and more usuable now.

I believe we understand the $$$ between lap/desk, but some, as I, don't have a choice. Lap. (travel)

I think Apple stuff is good. The only beef I have with them is I feel their stuff is way overpriced.

What is their netbook supposed to sell for? And what cpu will it have?

it is a laptop but the fan is on the bottem side so it can go and overheat + you can smash it and it will go kaput and if you throw water over it it will stop working.

Yes- Quebec!!! Dorval, that's where the airport is.

My husband and I go to Montreal at least 3 or 4 times a year.

We absolutely love it there.

We go up for cabane a sucre time, we go for St. Jean-Baptiste, we even go to the parade and wave Quebec flags. LOL

We go up for the Lantern Festival at the Jardin Botanique, and the butterfly exhibit every spring there as well.

Forgive my lack of accents, I am to lazy to type them. LOL

We always stay in the same motel in Greenfield Park when we go. We have many friends up there now.

I LOVE Montreal, and it's really nice to meet somebody from there!

So, how'd you wind up in Texas? We have friends and family there too... LOL

Laptop running BackTrack 4 Linux. I use it sometimes, but not that much.

Netbook with Windows XP; I use it more than my laptop, usually when I go out somewhere or am in bed.

Desktop with Ubuntu 9.10; I use it all the time, actually, I'm using it now.
