Depending on your computing needs, there might be a void where a netbook actually makes a lot of sense to you. For some, netbooks play the part of a cheap ultra-portable, for others it's about the miniature footprint and the perfect couch companion. For enthusiasts, it's often the case that netbooks fill the role of a secondary or even tertiary mobile system.
Unfortunately unlike desktop systems, mobile solutions are usually very limited in terms of customization. Shopping online and “building your own” portable solution does offer certain flexibility in terms of what hardware you want, but are still confined to what the particular manufacturer offers.
With this in mind, OCZ is offering the Neutrino 10” Do-It-Yourself netbook ($280), that allows users to select and install their own storage, memory and operating system. For those of us that have a spare laptop hard drive or an extra stick of memory lying around, the Neutrino seems like a great value.
