I'm thinking about buying a netbook for my daily computer use and wondered if there were any issues I need to be concerned about regarding my nook. I have a wifi only nook, had it since august.How are they with ade? I check out a lot of library books.
I actually have my eye on an Acer netbook, so if anyone has any info on those specifically. I'm not particularyly techy but I can setup a computer and troubleshoot minor issues. I also tend to research so much before a purchase that I confuse myself over what it is I actaully wanted in the first place.
Our laptop died a horrific death and we are in desperate need right now. Our plan is to buy a new laptop and a netbook. The laptop would be for general family use and the netbook would be mostly for me. I just want something small for internet, pictures, my ebooks, and music. Currently, I'm using an old old laptop that my dad gave my kids a couple years ago to play with. It has no soundcard (though, I'm sure it used to), is missing 3 keys, and the mouse goes insane periodically, but it lets me check my email and get my library books until ours can be replaced.
Thanks for any help you can offer.

I have a netbook (Dell) and have owned a Nook for 7 months. I have had no issues because I run the two separately from each other. I buy all of my books from B&N on my 3G connection. As far as ADE, I can't tell you anything because I don't mess with it but there are posts on this board if you do a search for it.

My Toshiba NB-205 works just fine with my NOOK. I have Adobe Digital Editions and Calibre both on there, no problem.

I use an Acer Aspire One that I've had for about a year and a NookColor for about a month and do not have any issues at all. i haven't installed ADE on it yet but from what I've read there will not be any problems. i do use Calibre and have installed a lot books with it and have had great luck so far.
I researched everything to death as well and am really happy with how everything is working together.
Hope this helps.

I have been doing a lot of research on this. I did a search here and didn't really come up with much, so thought I'd ask. I just couldn't figure out if a netbook was lacking in something I would need for the nook or ade. My dear departed laptop had ade and calibre so I'm glad to know that won't be an issue. And thank goodness I had everything backed up so all I have to do is transfer my files when I get my new computer. Hopefully soon. We still need to go look at them, since my husband wants a full size laptop, as well.
