You wouldnt expect anything less from Nokia though would we.   The first advantage is this Netbook is made by a “Mobile” company. Nokia knows what people want/need on the move which computer specialists Dell and Acer still havent seemed to get 100% right. Most netbooks don’t do HD graphics on their small screens, THI... (more)
