Netbooks are popping up everywhere
Are you seeing netbooks popping up everywhere? I was in a fairly classy restaurant the other day (not the type where you'd see many people with laptops) and I saw two people dressed in suits using netbooks. They're everywhere!
Because many of the "back to school" sales are focusing on inexpensive netbooks for students, I think we'll see an explosion of netbook sales this summer. Of course, most medical students have already started classes, so they probably made their purchases earlier this summer.
At some point, I think Apple is going to be forced to produce a netbook to keep up with the competition. They may not call it a "netbook," but it will be some type of equivalent low-cost notebook (not a tablet) that's small and light.
