Dylan: I do not agree with Mr.Castellano's assessment that gain in netbook sales will come at the expense of note book sales. I am sure there is a small segment of the populace will go that way but a vast majority of netbook sales will be from buyers who are not planning on buying laptops. Case in point: I was considering buying a laptop for my wife in the $549 - $649 price range. Her needs are pretty basic - websurfing, emails, and limited word processing. I changed my mind and we bought two Acer netbooks for $349 each from Frys - one for my wife and one for my daughter who is in the 4th grade. I can always download Openoffice from Sun's website at zero cost if they needed a word processing or spreadsheet software.
