Hardware, Embedded Systems It seems like we're getting even more signs that netbooks haven't been doing very well lately. Research figures by IDC on the processor market seem to paint a not-so-rosy picture of sales of Intel's Atom processor, and then figures coming in from DisplaySearch seem to paint a different picture. What's going on here?

Speaking for my own part, the Atom CPU is not super fast (the memory crippling windows license apart). Intel's announcement that newer much better Atom2 chips will hit the market real soon now has at least put of me from buying a netbook right now.

Wasn't it btw a vintage laptop brand that died for announcing the next version of their laptop prematurely, thus killing their sales and then going bankrupt?
