What do Acer, Asus, MSI, and Samsung have in common? 1) They are Asian companies. 2) They are the “leading” manufacturers of netbooks. (I’d include HP, but they aren’t Asian, hahaha.)
I only discovered these netbooks just recently, about a month and a half ago. I discovered that netbooks are really small laptops that are capable of running an OS but aren’t really powerful like a laptop. In other words, you can check your email, browse the net, and yadadada with a netbook, but it isn’t meant for doing some high-powered stuff like laptop gaming and graphic designing, though you could.
As someone who despises laptop, when I discovered these netbook, it really intrigued me. I did some research on these, and I was so close to getting an Asus EEE PC 1000H “Sakura Pink” until I realised that Amazon would not ship to me. That kind of spoiled my excitement.
However, a part of me still wants one. And one day I hope to get one (that doesn’t run on Vista!), and whether it’s Asus EEE PC, Acer’s Aspire One, MSI’s Wind, or Samsung’s NC10, it will be a new toy for me to play with.
