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.

I think nobody really expects any Apple netbook. In fact they just should make a relativily powerful MacBook in small size. In the past they created the 12" PowerBook so I'm sure today's technology allows them to build even smaller machines. Maybe it's just me but I would pay for a 10-11 inch sized MacBook Pro.
