Why do these companies care so much about the difference between a netbook and a notebook? Who cares! just give us better products that we can do more with.       -Denis

It's an important distinction for OEMs because of Intel's preferential pricing for Atom chips for qualifying netbooks. If an OEM doesn't meet the requirements for a netbook, as determined by Intel, they end up paying a higher price for the platform.

"as determined by intel".....they are a chip maker. They should have NO say in what classifies something. Intel needs to shut thier trap and let OEM's make a product and let us consumers determine what we need.
