Heh, I had a girl ask me about my MSI Wind one time. It's actually kind of cool that new technology like that can actually encourage someone to 'break the ice' so to speak. I don't use my Wind in public, but rather my Lat e6400, and while I think it's worth turning a few heads, I guess Panera Bread isn't the place to experience that. I do think that coffee shops/cafes make for a comfortable atmosphere for a person to talk to someone he or she doesn't know. What sucks where I live is that my absolutely favorite coffee shop closed and now all we're left with is crappy Starbucks.

My mini still gets a lot of attention at places but especially at work since I like to enjoy retro games on it. People know me as a total geek. When I come to work, they know I'm bringing my netbook on break to shoot Mad Dog McCree or to eat pac dots or play Halo or Blaster Master ;-).
The social effect for me is a toss up between 'wow that's cool' or 'it can't do anything more, it's just a netbook' jargon.
