What is your ideal size for a netbook/tablet?
7" tablet. Don't even consider a netbook unless it's a convertible. I do have a (cheepo) 10" tablet and it's simply too large to take with me everywhere I go. And it's too large to hold with one hand (so useless for reading for me).
My laptop, on the other hand, is a beast. And I don't want a small laptop. The functions of both devices are just not interchangeable nor do I want them to be.
