I might be close in picking up a netbook and had a few specific usability questions.
First, how do you install software? I'm guessing most people have an external CD/DVD drive to do this. I wasn't going to play with installing Ubuntu because the other half wants XP but I was going to look at putting Office 2003 on there until I realized you can't just install from a USB like you can with Linux. Or at least I don't think you can. I'd hate to also have to pick up an external drive for "just in case" installs. Related to that, do they give you an install DVD with your netbook?
Second, does anyone find a need for bluetooth? I was thinking I could maybe get it work with my phone for when a wireless connection isn't available. I've seen articles on using a phone for a modem so it should be possible. But one sales guy said you can always get a usb bluetooth stick to plug in but I think that might be more tricky than it sounds.
