Netbook or mini laptop?

The question in the forum was:

I am thinking of carrying a mini laptop or notebook along. Acer and Asus have notebooks of less than a kilo. Still an extra kilo though. I am planning to walk all the way from Amsterdam to Santiago, but not at once. Want to use a mini laptop for acces to information about weather, logding, routes etc, for my blog and uploading photos and for keeping in touch with people at home. No idea how easy wifi or online possibilities are to find in the countryside in Belgium and France.

Any advice? Stupid idea or not?
