Hey, I'm looking for suggestions for the smallest and cheapest notebook I can get with a CF reader. It looks like netbooks, which would be perfect, just don't come with a CF reader. I don't know why, but I guess they aren't in great demand. I'd of thought that would have been perfect for photographers.
Netbooks are designed to be small and sacrifice a lot of ports and internal features that larger mobile systems have in order to be that small.
You will have a hard time finding a netbook (if at all) that does have a CF slot add the fact that CF cards are...well...huge compared to other types of flash cards which is a no-no on the small mobile systems. The only thing you can avail to is to find the smallest all-in-one USB card reader you can find and take it along with you.
