Default Need netbook/small laptop advice...

My sister up in ME is considering buying herself a Dell Mini 10/1018 netbook...I've just taken a very quick look at it and my gut is not impressed...

She has a nice 17" Dell laptop but wants something more portable for email, online browsing and she needs some sort of wordprocessing software--she currently uses (ugh!) Word.

I've not begun researching yet but I think she might be better served with a small (12"-15") laptop vs. a netbook but...as Jim used to say...WTFDIK??? '-}}

Anyone using a netbook? Do you like it? Is Win7 Starter as ghastly as I've heard?
