I only want to use it while I'm sitting in front of the TV and while travelling and to do the following things: surf the web with Chrome (5 to 10 tabs at a time), edit documents with OpenOffice and watch pictures and movies. NO gaming. I intend to do only one thing at a time. I also have another computer at home on which I store all the documents, pictures and movies that I have. So I will access those with my netbook so HD space is not an issue.
It's a pretty good deal I think but here are my questions:
-Possible to use 5 to 10 tabs at a time in Chrome?
-Possible to watch movies? Even HD movies?
-10" too small for what I want to do?
-Is 1GB of RAM enough?
-Windows 7 Starter good enough?
I actually went to the store and tried a similar one. Yes it is slower than my desktop computer but it looks like it can handle HD videos easily. I ran Internet Explorer and it was a little bit slow... I'm expecting something better with Google Chrome.
