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 wanted an ARM netbook, I had money for one but I never saw anything to buy, there were a few ARM netbooks but the were either very low quality or expensive.

I just bought 3 Onda (Chinese) tables with dual core processors for £90 I would have bought them with keyboards but they didn't exist.

aarm64 hopefully brings interesting things with its more mips like 64bit instruction set. It could be a bust or could seriously entrench arm in mid range portables or somewhere in between.
