Netbooks or Notbooks

I used to be excited about buying a netbook, just not giddy enough to actually pick one up. I still wanted a netbook after the iPad shipped. But I still didn't pick one up.

Apple then shipped the iPad 2.

As I continued to track netbooks, they didn't change at all during that same time. The prices are roughly the same, though fewer run XP and it is cheaper to get one with a 250-Gig hard drive. The only things that changed with netbook is sales -- they went down!

I've lost my desire for netbooks because netbook makers aren't fighting back against the tablet threat.
