Hardware, Embedded Systems And it's that time of the, eh, quarter again. The third quarter of 2009 has ended, so IDC and Gartner both published their figures on marketshare and sales. The big news is that Acer has surpassed Dell and is now the number two PC manufacturer in the world.

why these stories always paint netbooks as poor margin sales. That is what they used to say about desktops. And if netbooks made so little money, why keep making them. Why! because they do make money. These analysts are comparing todays prices with the greed of the 80s. Back then PCs cost more than high end refrigerators.

I happen to own an Aspire One and love it. It does what I need.
