Dear Computer Lady;
I am pedaling a tandem recumbent bicycle many a mile when on vacation with my husband (the Prince!).
I would like to have a small netbook on the bike to use while I pedal…
I already have a wordprocessor mounted to our tandem by my husband’s invention & enjoy writing while I pedal!
Do you have one that you would recommend for simple internet research use & to send a few e-mails while on the road please???
I have purchased (in the past) the $100.00 CVS version which turned out to be JUNK!!!

Dear Ms. VT. POET,
My first netbook was too small, and the hard drive was not large enough to hold many files, so I do know that you have to be careful when selecting a netbook.
My current netbook is an Acer Aspire. It is a little bit bigger than the average netbook with and 11.6″ screen, and the hard drive is large enough to meet all my needs. When I purchased it, the Acer Aspire only had two GB of RAM, but I had done my research, and knew that I could upgrade it to 4GB, which I did.
Amazon has a list of Acer Netbooks here:
You should be able to find one that will meet your needs.
PS: Would a tablet work better for your travels? My iPad is great for internet and email.
