NYT: Thin and Inexpensive Netbooks... - 04-03-2009, 01:06 AM
New York Times: Light and Cheap, Netbooks Are Poised to Reshape PC Industry
The above article prominently features a picture of the Dell Mini 9, but the article itself barely mentions it or any other specific netbook. The article itself is not very well written; it seems to be highlighting the "new breed of netbooks" that use cellphone chipsets, but it wanders from topic to topic in an extremely confusing manner and offers few details. However, it is an interesting read if only for the discussion of the turmoil that netbooks are bringing to the traditional desktop/laptop market. This is probably one of the best parts of the article:
So what do you think? Should Dell put a warning sticker on the Mini 9? I'm all for it! It should read: "WARNING! This computer poses a great threat to the profit margins of laptop resellers, chipset manufacturers, and sellers of Windows Vista. Continued use of this netbook may result in more continued use of this netbook. Symptoms include compulsive searching for Wi-Fi hotspots and compulsive checking of the Dell Outlet."

Ha, the Dell Mini 9 should have increased the stock price for Apple. I never thought I'd buy OSX ... but I did for this netbook. :-) Seems to me, others did the same.
Long Live the Netbook ... everyone wins ...

I think Intel and MS both underestimate what these things can do. As far as laptops go,they basically do what most laptops are good for. Thats why people have desktops for gaming,video editing,photoshop and the like.
People who buy those high end gaming laptops need to check out the prices on desktop computer parts before buying them, thats for sure. However,thats not to say im not eagerly awaiting ION, but thats not gonna be that much more than the Mini 9 im typing on now...
