We've got an older model Acer Aspire netbook.
Utterly fantastic for us for motorhome use.
Mainly used for lots of wifi internet use; also to store/carry documents and photos; and as a TV monitor too.....
We can upload to it all the photos/videos that we take on our smartphones during trips away, to free up phone memory space.
To watch TV we just hook it up via USB cable to a portable external hard drive (one terrabyte) which we load up with literally hundreds of home-computer-downloaded-from-internet films and TV series before we set off
If I was buying again I'd consider getting one with a slightly bigger screen becaue of the film viewing use that we put it to. But if not to be used for TV viewing, then the 11.6 is a great size.
We did buy a bigger battery with it at time of purchase instead of the "standard" battery (about 3 years ago?) and I'm glad we did; as we use it a lot away from mains electricity and away from the 12 volt power transformer/adaptor that I bought to power/charge it in the MH.
Small and light enough to carry around easily.
Keyboard is almost normal full size.
Cheap enough that we wouldn't be desolated to drop it/get it stolen.
