    netbooks are dead.

    Too bad. I dont need to lug around a 15.6" laptop with a DVD which I dont use.
    For travel, lite and small size, netbooks were good. I do not need a fast CPU nor 4gb
    of RAM when site-seeing in LA, Vegas, Hawaii, etc. 1GB, 250gb, 10.1" was good enough.

    But, now, it's back to figuring out how to safely store and secure my laptop in the motel/hotel
    when I am out.

    Nope, instead they charge $1000 or more for an average laptop / PC running a very pretty GUI that hides its underlying Unix completely...

    And I would have to say, I would rather have a MS Surface Pro with the keyboard than a netbook, by far.

    For me, one line in that article says that the site are either delusional or Apple 'fanboys'.

    Please, nothing Apple produces is 'cheap', it is infact quite expensive for what it is!
