My daughter lives in Seattle so her internet connection is slow compared to Wenatchee. I did buy her a $300 netbook about a year and half ago at Costco. It has 4 gigs of RAM and a 500 gig hard drive. Everytime she comes to Wenatchee she does all her downloads. I would buy one of these if they are still available!! Ive, are you in Pend O'reille County or Stevens?? We have friends living in Pend O'reille county and they got fiber to their home this spring under the PUD. Don't miss this opportunity!!!! if available!!! It appears that you might have 1Gbps internet speeds available to you without moving to central Washington or Kansas.
