Hardware, Embedded Systems There's a new hype going on in the world of computing. I used to call them 'tiny laptops', but somewhere along the way, Intel's marketing got at me and now I call them netbooks. Every self-respecting manufacturer has a netbook product line, or is about to introduce one (Apple?), so I figured I would take a look at what all the fuss is about: I bought a netbook.

But you have to remember that the Palm and TR-100 had:

1) A small black and white screen
2) No COLOR! to power
3) No OS per se that taxing the HD or SSD
4) Come on the CPU...
5) No eternet to power
6) No USB to power
7) No wifi or bluetooth to power

Almost like having a motorcycle battery to start a HEMI.
