Okay, I’ve been giving this matter some thought. Here I go: I’m getting rid of my Netbook. I am going to sell off my spare PC kit, my Netbook, those few other worldly possessions that I still lay claim to. The iPad has perfectly superseded my Netbook at the exact tasks I used it for; the battery life of my iPad is competitive with the Netbook; iPad and charger together weigh less than half of what my Netbook does, along with a comparable decrease in volume take up. Nice, eh?

Tonight, I plan to rebuild my personal computer out of the spare kit, plug in a monitor, install Fedora Core and get to work.

I’ll probably stick Windows 7 on there too for all those niggling things I can’t do under Linux.

There you go. Watch this space for sales information on the Netbook.
