So I'm debating over which netbook to get the MSI Wind 10.2" or the Acer Aspire One 11.6". I have a dedicated desktop at home that I built a little short of a year ago to do all my heavy duty gaming and photoshopping, and everything else that needs a really buff processor and graphics card. But now, I want/need a portable cpu and I don't want to carry a big laptop around. I will just be surfing the web, listening to music, email, watching some videos and programming on it. I will not be using windows I will be running Ubuntu on it as well, so I believe I can get away with the 1.33 processor speed that the 11.6 Acers come with. Please give me suggestions one what you think, if you already have one. I am seriously 50/50 on either netbooks, the Wind has a better processors and better intel graphics but the Acer has a much better resolution size and slightly larger keyboard and much slimmer as well. Thanks for the help in advance.

The biggest consideration for me, when it comes to netbooks, is keyboard size, then specs second. I haven't tried the Aspire One, but my experience with the Wind's keyboard is favorable. It's definitely not as cramped as the original Asus Eee PC's!

Why not try out a Wind? If you like the keyboard, then go for it, since it has better specs and all...
