3D News, GL, DirectX Currently, NVIDIA is really missing out on the netbook market, which is dominated by all-Intel platform designs. NVIDIA has finally woken up to this reality, and the outspoken cofounder, president, and CEO of NVIDIA, Jen-Hsun Huang, has launched an all-out campaign to promote his company's Ion platform - and he isn't shy of flinging some poo to Intel and netbooks in general.

Netbooks are filling the niche of people who want something small and simple with decent battery life for light duty tasks like browsing and typing up a simple document... and that seems to be the point the suits at Microsoft, Intel, Nvidia and AMD are missing.


Amen to that. I've just been travelling a bit, staying in backpacker hostels - netbooks seem to have *really* caught on among that market, for obvious reasons. They're relatively light, don't take up much room in a pack, and you can check your email, edit your photos, and update your travel blog, all from a comfortable couch in the hostel. Really, why would you *not* buy one if that's your lifestyle?
