A new netbook

I've just replaced my beloved Asus Eeepc with a new netbook. The Asus developed some technical problems, and so I bought a little Samsung (here). It's very like the Eeepc, except that it runs XP rather than Linux, is slightly larger, and has a larger screen.

My fingers like the larger keyboard, and my eyes like the larger screen. But it's not as convenient (the Asus was such a good size, and started up really, really fast) and feels less robust (it's very plastic-y).

The big benefit is the six cell battery, which gives 6 hours' + battery life. Result.

It's amazing that you can get computers like this so cheaply. Early days yet, but I'm quite pleased with this as a tool for working on the move.

Just enjoying first bottle of Legras following your recommendation (bought a case from BBR) - you're right - very taut, refined, vinous with an exceptionally fine and long lasting stream of bubbles. Definitely gives Ruinart a run for its money - excellent length also - in fact I think this is as good as Ruinart.
