A couple of days back, we said something about the future of netbooks. AMD CEO Dirk Meyer says that “The distinction between what is a Netbook and what is a notebook is going to go away. There will be a continuum of price points and form factors.”
He says that the people who buy cheap netbooks are not able to enjoy full PC experience. I don’t understand this statement. If someone is buying a $299 netbook, he must be well aware of it’s capabilities. At such a low price, you won’t be getting a top-of-the-line netbook with all the features. If you shell out $450 for the ASUS EEE 1000H or S101, you would be able to get a great PC experience unless you want to play Crysis.
Although, we must consider the fact that these words are coming from a company that does not have a netbook processor and think that they do not need one too. [fudzilla]
