Hardware, Embedded Systems After the rather unexpected success of the netbook, manufacturers started looking for more ways to capitalise on the cheaper end of the market. Many of them are now putting netbook internals (the Atom platform) in desktop computers, such as nettops and cheaper all-in-one solutions. According to several analysts, this is going to be one of the few places where the desktop market can grow. And while we're on the subject of hardware, TechRepublic took the Dell Adamo apart to see its internals.

All these Nettops and Netbooks are cheap devices that can be connected to a central server and run essential applications off the the server

Linux or Windows devices are already able to run Windows apps through ThinServer

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Wake me up when the so-called cloud computing buzz goes away or when it actually turns into what it is hyped up to be. Until then, it's just thin client solution by a new name, appropriate for some situations but hardly for most home use.
