Hi all,

Just wanted to get your thoughts on using a netbook (I've heard good things about the new acers) for LAMP development. Maybe some of you have already tried it? At the moment I'm using an old HP/Compaq nx9005, with 256 ram and a 40 gig hard drive running ubuntu, and it does grid a bit. Plus it has a Japanese keyboard, with no forward slash, which makes things difficult. I have been thinking about getting a new laptop, but like the idea of a really small machine I can take anywhere.

All opinions welcome!
Thanks!

They should all do the job. I have an Aspire One from when they first came out and it runs Ubuntu Netbook remix, Aptana, The GIMP etc. with only a few hesitations. The modern ones with a bit more RAM would help.

Has anyone had any issues with the keyboard size when using one for development? I could imagine it would either get annoying after a little while, or you just get used to it. Which one did you find?
