The main motivation for starting a blog is my new Dell Mini 9. It's a sweet little machine and I am especially enamored with it because it is running Apple's operating system OS X. It's my hackintosh and I take it everywhere. I'm a total mobile tech addict and this is the best bang for the buck that I have ever experienced. Consider that I spent $600 for an iPhone the week they originally released, and then consider that this apple clone netbook was half that. Runs Photoshop, Word, and Serato, as smooth as can be and its a joy to use. Now I just wish that there was universal free wifi, that would be heaven. Also looking forward to the option to tether the Mini 9 to my iPhone for 3G. Some folks have 3G netbooks already but I don't want to have to deal with getting a separate data plan.
Anywho...I guess what I'm getting at is that this is gonna be fun. =]
I highly recommend the platform, it really is a great value. Very flexible and capable, especially for what I'm using it for. Probably not as your main computer, but a very worthy sidekick to a good desktop (I have a 24" iMac).
