When I look at netbooks, I'm still amazed by their prices. You see, there was a time when I spent quite a bit of money to purchase a tiny little Sony VGN-T series that had a 10.6" screen and a built-in DVD drive. I didn't need the built-in DVD drive, so I would have been perfectly happy with a tiny device that had a 10.5" screen, a thin body, and no built-in optical drive.
Netbooks made by Asus, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung, Acer, and other companies currently range between $300 to $800. The cloud computing revolution is here! Some of the most popular models are the Asus Eee (many different ones to choose from), the MSI Wind, the Samsung NC10, the HP Mini Note, and the Sony Vaio P (which Sony refuses to call a netbook).
