Hardware, Embedded Systems As some of you may have noticed, I'm slightly obsessed with my Aspire One netbook, and actually, with netbooks in general. They are great little devices, more powerful than you'd give them credit for upon first encounter. And, but that might just be me, netbooks are what laptops should have been from day one: truly portable. El Reg has put together a buyer's guide for today's netbooks, and while the guide is generally spot-on with its assessments, it does present some odd choices here and there. Read on for some of my own thoughts grown out of experience.

There allready are laptops and small laptops out there, that are Centaur driven. By that I mean driven by one or more C7 processors - which mean that there might some something on the way.

Also the Nano/Isiah/CH might be more powerhungry (I'm sure that problem will be taken care of) - but the chipsets are quite low energy (Not as low energy as the latest AMD chipsets) but they even the score quite well.
