How many notebooks do we really need on the market?  It's starting to look like a women's shoe closet on the market.

Xcore don't mean X processors dang it!!!



I agree somewhat, however, see it this way. Notebooks are where everything is going, into Virtualization of all data, like what the netbook would be used for in a business setting, (wait till i get to it before firing off some hate response on the business netbook) At my job, I login to my desktop, which syncs my documents and all other folders with a server, i then login to my email, which also syncs with a server, and what would be the extra change if you had a linux distro, from a netbook, loading a window to a remote desktop connection, like windows (i say linux distro since i know they are smaller installs, and lower component usage) I have a laptop, and I feel my laptop (Acer Aspire 6920g, and i don't even like acer) is fantastic for both gaming, work, and browsing alike. I use my latptop for all these things, with my 9500gs, 4 gigs of ram with the Vista SmartBoost or whatever it's called gving me another 2 gigs of ram, and my 2.0 dual centrino, and 320gb hdd, it plays most modern games quite well, as well as store a whole bunch of my work data, with Flash, Dreamweaver, Photoshop and Illustrator all installed.

Also, note how the Android Phone and iPhone (if you can call that a phone.) does web browsing on a 3g network, well you can buy network cards like that, and my company has one to demo websites where there's no internet. Imagine one of those and a netbook, and then a virtual server login, you could work from Hawaii if absolutely necessary, like login, mail a document someone lost, and then logout, no data stored on your local machine (unless you're retarded and save login details) and then also for additional security, a fingerprint scanner, which I also have on this laptop, and it works marvellously, i can launch programs with my fingers if I wanted to.



I'm all about the notebook influx, given that the bang/buck ratio has increased so dramatically. It's becoming pretty routine to find 17" notebooks in the sub-$1K range, and even gaming notebooks are becoming affordable. I was  a happy camper picking up Gateway's semi-decked out P7811-FX for $1,250 last summer, when traditiionally such a notebook would easily have cost double or more just two short years ago.

Keep saturating the market - I'll probably be looking to upgrade in another year or two.
