all that wasted space and power for an optical drive, again technology goes backwards.

Hey but can I plug it into a cigarette lighter ?

Don't be hating on innovation. I'm hoping that it comes with fold out tools like spoon, fork or spork, knives and a corkscrew. Perhaps one day soon a manufacturer will be smart enough to build a swiss army knife into it's netbook design.

It's getting to be about that time to get one of these netbooks. Now that manufacturers have listened to reason and figured out a way of integrating an optical drive and in at least one netbook a tablet conversion that most netbooks should be able to do. 

These netbooks scream out touch screen. These small screens need to be touch screens and that can be implimented cheaply without increasing the cost of manufacture and the over all retail price by very much. Same thing with the optical drive.

 We don't need no stinking Optical drives, They are missing the point of what a netbook is.

 

 

 Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

Remember it's also a PC as well as being a netbook and a PC puts no restrictions on what it can integrate. I think that a Netbook can be alot of things to alot of people. As long as it fits my needs I really don't care what it's called. 

So try looking at it like that. Don't get in the way of innovation.
