Full, ultra-light notebook computers prices falling quickly. The arrival of the iPad and other tablets. Underpowered to the point of uselessness. Cramped designs. All reasons for the death of the netbook. So long, netbooks—you won't be missed. [Fortune]
Netbooks might be underpowered, but they are more powerful than the iPad.
Netbooks are still a relatively new technology, and any claims that they are being phased out by even newer technology are premature, at best.
Sorry, but the iPad is nothing more than an iPod Touch XL.
It's a content viewer, not a content creator.
Both netbooks and the iPad will have their markets.
Neither one will replace your computer.
