I can't see the point of netbooks. Maybe for a small portion of the population that needs to be connected all the time any place they go. But then again their are smart phones for that sort of thing. So perhaps someone that hates using smart phones but needs the constant plugged in factor. Otherwise, it costs so little to have a full featured laptop for a few extra pounds. I think the extra weight is worth it.
Tough I dig how many Netbooks comes with Linux Though good luck running all your internet streaming video with Linux.... I still have issues and personally can't wait to see how much Windows 7 has improved on Vista. If Windows wasn't such a dog on my PC, I probably would have switched back by now.
