I read the other thread and have a few questions of my own. I have a birfday coming up and my wife wants to buy me one of these. The only ones I've seen are the Wal-Mart Acer and the Asus at Best Buy. Will a netbook be able to handle Win 7? Is it really worth the wait? I just want something for surfing and email while I'm away on business. My laptop at home is my main computer and I'm too scared to surf the net on my guberment laptop. Oh, and can I get these to work with an aircard? Should I just look into getting one thru AT and T?
