HAVING TO BRING A SEPARATE KEYBOARD WITH ME DEFEATS THE PURPOSE. This is one of the MANY reasons the iPad is not a solution for me. Also I have no idea what the iPad costs - it appears that the 64G model says 3G would run me over $700 - but that is more than I want/need to spend to meet my needs.
I am not buying an iPad. There is another thread in TFatS for the iPad debate. I was after netbook brand suggestions, ie the superiority of the Eee over, say, an HP machine.
