Do you like viruses and malware? Then Limewire is your friend.

The 10v should be fine for downloading anything you want.

I love my 15" MPB but it was getting far too heavy to cart around campus, so I got the 10v to take to class for notes. That's really all I use it for, and its just enough-- it has completely saved my spine already.
I might travel with it too; it would be so much nicer in a carryon.

I bought mine (1010) to download programs etc for my other three computers. Where I live there is no broadband, only dial up. But where I work is surrounded by hotels all which have wifi for free. So I download what I need and then transfer it to my desktops at home using either the network port or USB flash drives.
Plus much of the work I do is online through the companies intranet; the 1010 is perfect for that; does as good a job as the desktops we use at work. fdalbor

I don't have one yet, but I'm champing at the bit for the 1010 so that I can finally have my own portable instead of a "work loaner." (bare bones 1501: big, heavy, and no bell or whistle)

At present, I'm planning to get it with "the works." Now I just need to find the correct USB ODB1 cable for my Honda, and I'll be able to read my ECU codes too...

Er, Bittorrent? Use it all the time, never once a virus. Ofc, I use private trackers, but even with the comment system in most public trackers, the viruses should be weeded out very easily. Common sense comes into play, too, as lamerapmusic.mp3.exe probably isn't what you want.

Ontopic:
I use my netbook for browsing the net... hence the name. OK and portable movies.

So far I've gotten what I need faster than torrenting (I don't even consider Limewire an option)

Of course always apply proper virus checks before opening any downloaded file from websites like this.

You can also use programs like Youtube to mp3 converter. Takes a while to format the video into an mp3 but hey, it works!

I bought mine (10v) to use as a tool for my job (Cisco Engineer). The size is ideal to carry around & to be able to have this along with a serial-usb adapter & a console cable is more a less all I need - Oh & 160GB storage is a bonus

I like the compact form factor of netbooks for ease of travel. Sometimes I tire of the tiny screen, but that is easily solved by plugging into my 19 inch external monitor. I've used my netbook for music recording and general web use.


Hi, I'm interested in netbooks like the Dell Mini, Acer Aspire One and laptops of all kind. I own a Toshiba Satellite and an MSI Wind (U100).
