I have a rubbish old netbook that I use for writing when I'm out and about. It's of such limited specifications that I use notepad++ for this rather than a real word processor.
Recently I lost some work to file corruption, and decided I'd rather switch to a cloud-based service like google docs or office online. However, such are the limitations of my hardware that even these services cause the dear little thing to struggle terribly.
I don't really want to use a file-storage solution like dropbox. Not only is this slightly less convenient than direct cloud-based editing but it'll require running another service in the background, taking up precious memory from my 512MB.
I don't really require any functionality better than standard windows notepad. So are there any super-light cloud based text editors?
(Moral of this question: don't skimp on hardware, it's a false economy)
