Hardware, Embedded Systems Asus is the company that shook up the laptop market a couple of years ago with their introduction of the EeePC netbook. And with their announcement that they will no longer be producing netbooks in 2013, Charles Arthur over at the Guardian UK has declared that the netbook era has now come to an end. Sad news for those of us who still love our netbooks! Harry McCracken over at Time Mag thinks they'll be back. Anybody who spends time wiping the smears off their tablet's touchscreen might agree.

How about a (theoretical) Surface with a Clovertrail chip?

Has an attachable keyboard (optionally tactile), reasonable processor, can run x86 apps, and can become a Tablet when need be.

Also Clover Trail Win8 tablets get 8+hrs of battery life.

I'd certainly buy it in a heartbeat over the Surface RT I have now, which has a weaker processor than my Lumia 920.
