(In order to get rid of a cable and free up a USB port, I recently obtained a bluetooth mouse. Works fine, but sometimes the delay from mouse to application is too much. If I were a gamer, I'd have retired that mouse immediately...) And with much smaller screen resolution? And, does the starter edition have an RDP client? EditAdd: And I believe starter edition is a monotasking environment. If you, like me, are used to juggle several applications, provide remote support, look up passwords on the side, copy&paste here&there, then the netbook experience could feel intimidating.
