Network computer returns

After a PC crash last October I blogged about the network computers that were being touted 10+ years ago.

Now I see that they might be making a return, but now they are being called netbooks.

My wife recently bought the Asus version, the Eee PC. It cost her R 2,700 (about US$300) and runs Linux with OpenOffice software. The storage option is to plug in a USB flash drive. She bought it so she has a light PC to work on when she travels.
