I am wondering what the best device would be for daily scheduling and showing clientele powerpoints. I would prefer if the device is small and not as bulky as a laptop but would still like the performance that a laptop has. I am unsure of the new technology it has been several years since i have looked at any new computers, tablets, or palm devices. Thanks for your suggestions.

I would recommend the Toshiba Thrive. I love the tablet. It has the USB port which comes in pretty handy if you store all your files on a USB flash drive. It also comes in pretty handy when you're on the go as well, i sometimes review my Word documents, or review the notes i took in class while riding the track to school. The device will be a little bulky when compare with others, however, it's not like gigantic type of bulky. Not to mention, you can plug in those multi USB ports outlet and totally transform the device into a "mini" laptop (it won't give you the full experience like an actual laptop, but hey, at least it does the job). So yeah, check it out and see it for yourself. Hope that helps :).

If you're looking for a small notebook, something with AMD's C or E series CPUs is a better bet than Intel's Atom. Much more powerful, in the same form factors and prices. Their A series is far better still, but I think it's most just like in full sized 15" or the like systems.

an e350 or 450 isn't nearly as powerful as AMD's A series or Intel's Core ix CPUs, but would still at least run any current office software or the like.

The VAIO netbook is a reasonably good alternative. It is fairly versatile, but does not have a CD drive. There is also a very light Dell I am looking at. Can send you specs in you are interested. I teach medical students and am always putting together power points.

My grandson needs something for high school, he does a lot of power points & has to save his work on a flash drive, I really don't know what I am looking for but I need something reasonably priced & he says he needs something smaller than a laptop. He mentioned a net book but when I looked, there were so many diff ones, I had no idea. His b-day is coming up.. Help me figure out what I need. Thanks

There's nothing smaller than a notebook that will do that right. You can get 11.6" notebooks with AMD's c series or e series CPUs that are a bit better than Intel's Atom and still cheap though, and small. There are 10.1" notebooks too still but they've mostly been replaced with 11.6", and I think they only use Intel's Atom.

Bear in mind that while AMD's c or e series chips are faster than Atom, they're still...not ideal for a full fledged PC. Like for the same price as an 11.6" notebook with one of those, you can get a 14 or 15.6" notebook with AMD's full A series CPU or Intel's i series (although I'd suspect for him he'd be happier with an A series CPU as it combined a decent CPU *and* GPU at a super low price point, while Intel's chips in ultra cheap systems have terrible graphics).
