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.

Though dvhh was talking about the past, the times of Vista, referring to the inexpensive netbooks available back then. And, IIRC, they typically shipped with i945 - the PowerVR models were a bit premium ones back then.

BTW, that Intel GFX isn't really so bad - yeah, slow, but OTOH it can be also described as "fast enough" for its typical usages.
