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.

I hope other vendors see the Surface and see what can be done with a little bit of ingenuity.

I got my hands on a W501 by Acer and its an amazing little device. Its lighter, thinner, and has better battery life than the Surface all while running an Intel Clover trail processor .... but it pains me so much to part with my Touch Cover.. its seriously that good.
