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.

man nelsonj you sound like an MS shill/astroturfer repeating the same surface ad multiple times in this thread. I havent seen much good said about the surface keyboards which is a dealbreaker. My experience with core i7's is that they overheat in full laptop chassis, the cpu locks at 99C, the ram overheats at 130C and crashes the system. I dont see how a tablet format is going to magically fix these problems.
