I decided to buy myself an early Christmas present: An Asus Eee 1005HA netbook. My old Dell Inspiron still runs fine, but can not really do the portable thing any more: it's hinge is broken, and the battery lasts about twenty minutes or so.

What is really awesome is the battery-life, which easily surpasses nine hours. Nine!

Last but not least, it only weighs one and a half kilos, so it won't break my back when I lug it around.
