Netbooks are tiny little notebooks that are modest in both power and price, right? Well, not anymore.
We’ve seen Asus push the boundaries of what a netbook should do with the Eee PC 1004DN and its built-in optical drive.
Although we’ve seen larger-screened ‘netbooks’ from Dell in the Mini 12, Asus will soon be pushing the Eee PC to 11.6-inches, according to Digitimes.
The most popular, or at least the most readily available Eee PC models will still be 10-inchers – making up half of all Eee PC shipments – but the 11.6-inch model will be the second most popular with 30 percent Asus’ netbook shipments for the year.
The line between notebook and netbook is about to get blurrier.
