Editorial Last week, Apple again repeated its claim that the iPhone and iPod Touch are capable of filling the netbook niche. They also claimed that netbooks can barely be called personal computers. Both of these statements are complete and utter nonsense, but instead of writing down some high-level definition of what a netbook is, I decided to simply write down all the things I do with my netbook that the iPhone/iPod Touch cannot do to make the difference between the two that much more tangible.

Others - Netbook is a small laptop.

Yet, when someone points out that by and large netbooks are severely underpowered, even compared to low end notebooks, people jump out of the woodwork arguing that they are plenty powerful for what most people use computers for - browsing, email, IM, writing the occasional document.
