Does anybody have suggestions or experiences with the "really small" computers for travel similar to those you might find on www.dynamism.com? Or how about an updated opinion on netbooks or umpcs?
I'm off to present and attend a conference in Spain at the end of May and I was originally planning to bring my iPad (yes, I got one ). However, as a Canadian, I can't access the iPad iWork suite yet, Docs-to-Go is not yet out for iPad, etc. So, I'm a bit concerned that I won't be able to make any last minute changes or respond to work demands while oversees. Also, I'm not keen in getting my finger ripped off in a country that I've been warned is notorious for pickpocketing and petty theft (apologies to all the law abiding Spanish!) and I'm guessing the iPad would make a great target.
My backup plan was to get a used netbook or other umpc from EBay or other place. Small and light are good, and if lost or stolen, I wouldn't have lot much. Howeever I'm gathering a number of people find the small keyboard from the first generation of 9" or small screen netbooks to be too small to be worthwhile.
Any recent opinions on good travel computers? Thanks.
