Or rather Why Netbooks(or whatever people want to call them)Suck Sure, some people are very happy with their atombooks and atomtops, and if they like it, I luuurve it. Do they beat your standard hungry, bloated beast? SURE. Would it be better to have more of them in use than beasts? Absolutely! Are they capable? Sure. Sure. Regardless, they aren't much better than your standard piece of junk. They are a total joke when viable, sensibly-designed ARM machines are NOT some fantasy or wild idea. Pardon the rant, but it's kind of disgusting for someone to suggest these things are some kind of gift or advancement when they're basically like hybrid SUVs or like someone sawing off part of a Hummer and patting themselves on the back. Again, I don't deny that many people are and can be served very well by these devices. That doesn't mean that people shouldn't be pointing at the pink elephant in the flipping room. And another thing, they don't make quality pocket-protectors anymore!
