Is a "netbook" lost on me

So, I bought a new netbook the other day (a Lenovo Ideapad S10 if you're curious). And so far I really like it. It's just the right size to carry around and will make a great travelling companion. However, I'm starting to realize that the true purpose of one of these netbooks is a bit lost on me.

I think the real purpose is that of a Facebook or Twitter companion for the digerati technoratti and people with more exciting and mobile lives than I have. Perhaps if I worked out of an office, it may be a bit different or if I had friends all over the world, it might make more sense, but as it is, all my friends (such as the number is) are all local or a quick phone call away.

Oh well, at least I have one, so when I'm sitting at Starbucks, at least I look cool. (Insert emoticon-du-jour here)
