    trying to decide on a netbook going to use it for school and maybe some inventer/solidworks (works on a P4 and onboard so it should work with these jsut fine)

    so far i have looked at the

    Acer Aspire one

    Asus EEEPC...maybe not with the 16GB SSD

    MSI Q2 wind<--leaning towards this one

    Oogh, tiny screens. I like to have lots of space when playing with CAD and stuff. Hardware should be more than sufficient. I used to suffer with a Rage 128, and a 2.0ghz P4 non-HT. It worked, but it was sloooooow. I had them throw my 9600pro on that machine, and while the data took forever to load in (as usual), I could actually rotate and zoom on the CAD without stuttering. I showed my supervisor how to shadowing and stuff too, she wasn't very fond of that. Thought I was gonna break something, lol.

    I'd take the MSI though, if I had too... Get a cable to hook it up to a real monitor and you'd be all set.

    why wouldnt you like the SSD? price?
    ACER is hands down the best cpu there, the MSI is borderline large...
