Apple While we're on the subject of netbooks today, I ran across a story by Ars Technica's Erica Sadun, who writes for Ars' Infinite Loop (Apple) section. She poses that Apple already sells a netbook: the iPod Touch and the iPhone. I've heard many people make this claim before (including Steve Jobs himself), but I find it very hard to see the iPod Touch and the iPhone as netbooks.

Netbook is absolutely nothing but a buzzword.
It make small laptop looks cool.

For some user and iPhone/touch/N810 will be a perfect fit, others will find more value in a, small but cooler than a notebook, notebook. If it's a netbook or not, what's the deal?

As for the "battery efficient", most netbook have 3 1/2 or 4 1/2 hours battery life. How is that more efficient than notebook? I have the same working time on my Macbook pro with a more powerfull cpu and a 6" bigger screen. Yes the battery is smaller, but the ratio isn't better.
