I have a Toshiba netbook, great machine. Does exacly what it was designed to do. What's unfortunate is that it is an ideal platform for watching your DVD movies on the airplane or whatever but there is no provision to "legally copy" your purchased movies on to the harddrive. I know all the DRM gets in the way but it seem like a crime to not exploint the technology more. Yes, I know you can buy/rent movies on-line but a lot of those services do not work overseas (like my Netflix account). Something to think about.
