I know that Windows CE is going to have its limitations, but at the price it is a little tempting. I am looking for something to just mess around with. I am at the point where a netbook may be slight overkill, but would be nice. Price of a netbook is over the top at the moment now though. Thoughts? Want to throw other toys out there in the price range in this neighborhood?

Well, that really depends on what you want to do with it. Do you need the functionality of a laptop or the simpleness of a tablet?

I like expandability myself. If it doesn't have extra ports etc, I won't bother with it.

I'd get the netbook myself but not the one you have there. Spend the money on an Asus EeePc, has more power, is excellent quality, and can run any regular operating system such as Windows
