By 2010 netbooks will have enough performance and software to be "good enough" for most people. They are small and light enough that you can throw them in a briefcase, purse or backpack instead of needing a separate piece of luggage. They actually fit on airline tray tables. With an ARM processor they can run all day on a charge. With an ARM and an eInk display they can run for weeks. With an earpiece and Skype, you (in principle) won't even need a cell phone anymore. There will still be a market for high-end machines for compute intensive applications and video games, but for most people netbooks will be "good enough". Here's an amusing take on the subject: http://www.pcworld.com/article/163607/the_future_of_computing_will_be_good_enough.html
