Just b/c it isn't an Atom doesn't mean it isn't a netbook.

I too rock the 1201n, a non-non-ion, and i avoid pinetrail at all costs, the power savings versus the video power gains is not a good compromise. It may be a netbook, but i use it as a desktop ninety percent of the time compared to my desktop. Video transcoding, video editing, all while surfing and vnc-ing my desktop in the house!

I'll take a convertible Netbook/tablet with a Core2Duo ULV processor. 10,000% more powerful and it sips power almost as well as the Atom. C2D ULV processors from Last gen will be more powerful than even a 5th Generation Atom Processor.

Yeah, I have one of these processors in my 11.6" notebook. Same size as a netbook. It's as powerful as a desktop processor, and my netbook sized notebook gets over 7-8 hours of battery-life. And it costed essentially the same as a netbook (I paid $430 for this notebook).

 My brother in law is looking for an ULV or AMD Neo powered ultraportable, buton the cheap. Which make is yours?

 I thought all Atom processors since the n330 were dual-core? Or does CPU-Z lie to me about my netbook? I've got an ASUS 1201n rocking with an n330 and CPU-Z is telling me "2 cores, 4 threads", plus I've had it since the end of '09. So if dual core Atoms will only start shipping this year, HOW DO I HAVE MINE ALREADY?!? Just because 'Butters' hasn't reviewed a single dual-core netbook yet doesn't mean they're not out there yet...

This is referring to non-ION netbooks.

 That's true, I forgot about that point. Both the HP 311-1005ca and my lil' Asus 1201n are rocking an ION platform.

Sign me up.  I think the netbooks focused on power consumption too much up to this point.  It doesn't matter how light it is or how long it stays on, I won't use it if it's annoyingly slow.
