    Agreed, more names for the same products equals more confusin. Lets all stick to netbook please.

    I'd love a netbook, but haven't found a reason to buy one yet - someone invent one for me QUICK!

    I have been looking forward to ARM getting in on this part of the market. I could see big things ahead, but probably without Windows as we know it.

    Thing is, most consumers don't *care* about the internals of their machine. What they want is a straight forward, familiar experience and unless ARM picks up a partner who can offer that, then things really won't change.
