Intel Really Serious About Netbooks, Buys Netbook.com Domain

Paul_Lilly

By now it should be clear that the netbook craze isn't going away, at least not any time soon. Intel, who has a vested interest in the netbook market with its Atom processor line, has seen the writing on the wall and has picked up the netbook.com domain.

Right now the URL redirects visitors to Intel's product page for its Atom processor, but eventually it could morph into a fully fledged portal into the Atom-powered netbook world, particularly as more manufacturers continue to jump on the bandwagon.

For you budding entrepreneurs out there who are now kicking themselves for not picking up the domain name on the cheap, don't be too hard on yourself. Netbook.com wasn't available when Intel purchased it, and instead the chip maker bought it from the site's previous owner for an undisclosed sum, according to Notebooks.com.
