There are mixed definitions of what people think as "Netbooks" on this forum. Quite frankly, I get defensive when someone calls say the "11 MBA a "Netbook". Does anyone else? When I think of Netbook, I think back what Steve said when he announced the iPad in 2010...and I quote: "Netbooks aren't better at anything! They're slow, they have low quality displays, and they run clunky old PC software" I also think of the Asus EEE PC "10 Netbook I had right around that same time...which I sold on eBay and got a 13" MacBook Pro Early 2011 and is the Mac I use these days and right now. Anyway, I think what the "Netbook" category became includes the following type machines in general: (1) Cheaper build quality(although the eee pc felt pretty good) (2) Intel Atom level processor, no doubt slower bus speeds etc. to suit. (3) Not that great displays (4) Typical quality PC style battery with typical PC style longevity. Which tend NOT to last for years. These manufactures built the machines like this SO THAT they could drop the price LOW. I guess wanting to try the waters for that kind of LOW END market. Which makes sense, as a lot of people don't need any more power/quality than it takes to surf the web, read emails and look at some photos. Even though the "11 MBA is "11's, it does not fit into this category because it is a small quality built powerhouse, that can really handle a whole lot more than an EEE PC type machine. Apple puts great batteries in these small machines, hefty processors for the size, great displays, great keyboards, built ofcourse VERY well, and OSX!! and great software ofcourse. Oh, speaking of which...Windows. Windows already gets slow overtime with bloating, which all you guys know about...it just seems to happen with Windows. Having that issue on a Netbook is painful, man that thing can get so SLOW. Anyway, I want to here from you forum members.
