Ya know, I've been putting down netbooks a lot lately (and rightly so!), but my netbook has been a steadfast companion that I still use nearly every day. Its capabilities are just barely sufficient for it to function as a modern PC. I'm just spoiled by the power of a hand built desktop PC. Of course I paid $150 for this thing too. Manufacturers really screwed up by listening to people and trying to make them happy. Netbooks never should have been marketed as normal PCs. Tablets learned from that.
Well, they didn't "learn". They bumbled into it by having a 10" iPod Touch.
