Hi, everybody. My laptop is too heavy to lug around for doing a quick 1/2 hour writing spree. Any suggestions for a cheaper alternative? I have a NEO, but the screen is small so that I have to do a lot of scrolling to review what I've written. Anyone out there using an I-POD Touch or Blackberry or similar compact electrical device to do some quick, on-the-spur writing, please? I'd like to work on short stories when I have those unexpected times of waiting, but don't want to spend a chunk of money purchasing a 13" MacBook Air. Something that I could download to my Mac and not have to retype from a notebook. Thanks for your responses!
Get a netbook, like an Asus Eee PC. You're unlikely to find something more portable an convenient than the NEO. A Blackberry or Iphone would work, but no keyboard (or a tiny one, definitely not as good as the NEO. I have an Asus 1000HE; 10" screen and great keyboard, not too small, doesn't cause cramping.
Also, since you use an Alphasmart NEO already, you can get other fonts for it. The link below is a download for more fonts, one of which is an 11-line font. Might be worth a try if you want more screen space.
I have an Asus Aspire One netbook. It was less than $300, I think they've gotten a little bigger and gone up slightly in price. It's great for carrying around. It's very lightweight, I can do internet on it, etc.
