General chatter - Netbooks (mini laptops)- Anyone have one?

does anyone here own a netbook, or know someone who does? I'm thinking about getting one for class/homework, and as a supplement to my current laptop, which could use some frequent vacation time.

What's anyone's general thought on them? I've heard they're good to have, as long as you have another computer for other things, like cd burning, dvd watching, downloading, etc.

So what do you think? Here's the one I'm looking at- I know it's kind of expensive for a netbook, but I thought the six cell battery and hard drive upgrade would be worth it.
