    Soft Cell for netbook?

    I fell in love today with Toshiba's new netbook (Toshiba mini NB 205). However, a true TB addict, my first thought was "this will fit nicely in my large cafe bag" and my second thought was "Gee, I wonder if TB has a soft cell that would fit?"

    The computer is 10.4 x 7.6 x 1.3 inches and the battery juts out a bit from the back.

    Ideas on what size cell would work?

    The 6T size would be a good fit. See Brain cells.
    I selected this size for my new EGO bag to carry my Dell Mini 9. I may replace the Mini 9 in the future with a Dell Mini 12 or equivalent, so this gives me an upgrade path without having to purchase a new brain cell.

    As to the Toshiba netbook, I would look at it further to see if you can upgrade the memory. This is one reason I got the Mini 9 last Dec. Easy to replace memory. Netbooks are limited to 1 gig because of Microsoft constraints on XP Home.

    The 160 gig spinning drive is a waste on netbooks. I got the 16gig SSD and loaded it with Office 2007. Works fine with enough space for my purposes and boots quickly.

    Plan on loading Windows 7 sometime soon.

    My music files are on my 320gig Passport along with other files.

    Netbooks aren't laptop replacements but are great on trips for internet access and research.
    Been there. Done that. Can't remember.
