Netbooks larger than 12".  Isn't that called a notebook?  Really, once you take away the portability of a netbook, what's the point?  Pay less for a crippled notebook that's just as clunky.  Seem a bit kludgy.

Did you not "read more" after the jump?

Via needs to jump into the netbook scene fast because it's a newer market that amd has no share in. If via gets in before amd can get rolling I would be very happy because I have a netbook powered by a via processor and although it runs hot due to its 90nm process it does not sacrifice speed. It powered through vista like a champ and when I decided to test Windows Seven out it runs even faster.

Now if the japanese would jump on the AMD/VIA processors it might tell Microsoft/Intel stop telling us what we can do or canot do. Lets see we cant sell enough 15" and up laptops so lets limet the size of nettop/netbooks to 10". What difference does it make if its 8" 10" 12" 15" 17" if i want a 17" nettop/netbook beacuse of my bad eye sight i should beable to have one.

Economics: let's say you have a 17" 'netbook' at $650 and a 17" 'laptop' at $1300. The populace will majoritarily buy the netbook because of the price. In a certain extent that's OK because a netbook is sufficient for browsing, emailing, facebooking and so on. In other words, the 17" netbook cannibalizes the 17" laptop market. CPU and laptop manufacturers are making less money. From their point of view it is much better to have people buying a 17" laptop AND a 10" netbook.

....some companies have decided to just stand up to Intel :)

 

Take an OS, and edit out all the efficiency, and what you have left is a post-XP Microsoft operating system :)

 i clicked the read more button but there was no more, so i thought i would comment in order to invalidate the uselessness of the read more button, just trying to do my part
