    When you say the responsiveness of the machine is "laudable", did you perhaps mean "laughable"?

    Just get a mobile hotspot like a Samsung 4GLTE or 4G MiFi, most are free when you sign up for a contract( same price for data usage ) and even better you can use it on any wireless device and not be crippled by a ATOM powered netbook.
    If your area has a 4G network and feel its worth the charges a mobile hotspot is a much better solution.
    I have one and get much better speeds on the hotspot than I do my home network.

    VZ loves to gouge their customers. That $199 entry price will seem like pennies once you start paying triple-digit overage charges every month over the subsequent 24 months every time you exceed your monthly data cap. To be honest, I wouldn't recommend this getup even if it was being given away for free!!!

    Alternative solution #1: buy a Clearwire hotspot and enjoy unlimited 4G with no overage charges on ALL your wifi devices. It's the ONLY way to tether a notebook and use the web properly.

    Alternative solution #2: pony up an extra Franklin or two for a 11.6" HP dm1 with ULV Sandy Bridge. The mobility and performance is exceptional.
