Will the netbooks help or hurt the UMPC market?
The demand for the Asus Eee and the HP 2133 is growing so fast these days, especially as students get ready to go back to school.
I wonder if this netbook craze will hurt or help the UMPC market. Are consumers choosing netbooks over UMPCs? Or, are they getting drawn to ultra-mobile computing and discovering that a UMPC may be a better option?
Certainly, more consumers are looking for something small, light, and battery-efficient. What will this netbook craze look like when the holidays approach?
