On top of that, I have a feeling he is saying this to try to boost "normal" notebook PC sales. The entire laptop/notebook market has been crippled over the last year because of the extreme success in netbook sales.
I do not remember exact figures, but I was just recently reading that netbook sales this year were up 250-300% while "normal" notebook sales had dropped about 10-25%
Considering that Dell and other netbook manufacturers make a much smaller profit off of netbooks than they do on standard laptops, it is hurting the industry. Maybe those were partially his motives
Either way, I love my netbook because I bought it knowing what I would be using it for and knowing it would be a good device to do what I intended it to do. People simply buying them for a notebook replacement and expecting it to be just like their laptop are going to be disappointed, in my opinion.
