I won a netbook off of ebay tonight. It is very small with an 8.9 screen and I am hoping that it will pack very well. I wanted it mostly for transferring video and pictures to as my SD cards fill up. I also think it will be nice for updating posts along the way and for communicating with family when out of the country. The best part is that I paid less than $200 for it so if I end up breaking it along the way I'm not out much.
