i want to go to there:

I saw a girl with this micro mini computer at school yesterday and then I saw it again today at Walmart for roughly $280. Clearly I want one (for Bobito!).

I do have a few reservations:

1) I use the computer for two things only: Gmail and Microsoft Word. I fear it lacks the later.
2) I am a Mac. Obviously.

I keep eyeing these - Lindsey found one at Target!

I don't think anyone is suggesting this be your only computer - this is a good second computer for class, planes, coffee shops, travel etc. You can't do Word, itunes, pictures etc.

We use Google Docs for all non-printing document needs. They would work fine on this.

Since this pretty much is internet-only, Mac vs PC doesn't matter - a web page is still the same.

Maybe they will make these for real and not just for an enticing joke :

Daniel- Thank you for making this very unnecessary thing seem not only practical, but also incredibly needed. And I gotcha, when I was abroad I use to refer to my Gmail account as my jump drive. It probably has more memory than the whole computer.

And Esther, hook me up with that laptop! I need it for my Nephilium party.

I am not sure what it is but I WANT ONE! They are soo cute. I feel stupid wanting one but I can't help it. They draw me in. UGH! Let me know what you're reading and if you don't mind the name of that book the guy wrote at liberty.
