11-inch netbooks coming in 2009

If last year was the year of rise of 10.2-inch netbooks, this year, we are going to see 11.6-inch Netbooks. Asus and Acer are planning to launch 11.6-inch netbook models with a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. If you guys do not know, this is the same resolution that is sported by the Sony Vaio TT series and VAIO TZ series. Till now, there are three major criteria that differentiate a netbook from a notebook:

  • resolution
  • screen size
  • processor

First two are blurring away as netbook manufactures are not only bumping up the screen size, but resolution is also getting a jump from 1024 x 600. So what is next? Core 2 Duo or Celeron 2 processor in a netbook anyone?
