Good riddance. The only netbooks I approved of were those that came with high quality touch screens and converted into tablets.

If Microsoft hadn't imposed such strict limitations for Windows 7 Starter, maybe there would be far more netbooks now, and then people would be less likely to buy tablets, which are a market dominated by the iPad and Android devices (NOT them, yet they dominate the netbook market). Yep... they screwed themselves over... And I bet a lot of people who buy netbooks (or tablets) won't buy ultrabooks, due to the price.

I have an AMD E350 netbook, 4GB RAM, and it's a good secondary machine. (Thinkpad x120e) THAT is what netbooks should be. NOT slow Atom ones with a crippled version of Windows and 1GB RAM. I can see an atom netbook being useful for something like a home server where you don't need much power but will be running it frequently and therefore want low energy usage. The atom ones have good battery life and all. They're just slow.... do it right, and you can succeed.s

Yep. Netbooks only became popular because of XP's longevity. XP could run on anything and because MS failed to make a better OS for so long it provided a boost to sales of slow but highly portable computers. It's like the opposite of what happens when MS releases another version of bloatware. People rush out to buy the latest computer so that it can run the latest MS software.

I have a 5 or 6 year old laptop still swifter and about as tough on batteries as most Netbooks; tried one for about an hour and returned it, viva la ARM!!

I've never cared for Netbooks, Tablets or Ultrabooks. I'm perfectly happy with my "bulky" notebook that has much more power and a much larger screen/keyboard.
