OK, this may work somehow (Yes, I tried it). I prefer nmaster with no
stacking area (currently I'm running vanilla dwm). By the way is there
a reason why dwm has no nmaster by default (even 2wm has this)?

I don't see this too. It was more likely some critical pseudo-philosophic
statement that relates to it in the broader sense. In the future just
ignore these verbose digressions I make.
In this particular sense I just changed the topic from "Should I buy an
EEE PC 1000?" to "Is it necessary to have a portable computer?",
therefore it doesn't answer the initial question, but maybe can
contribute to it's answer.
