    I would snag a E-450 model any day over the rest of the stuff here.
    Got a HTPC with one and I would love to have that performance in a netbook.

    Nobody cares about netbooks anymore, Asus.

    Is this really a new product launch?
    Because I have had a C-60 powered 1015BX for around 6 months now...

    most netbooks are overpriced, a netbook is a ripoff if it cost more than $300.


    if they can keep it within the netbook bracket where it's price doesn't overlap on higher functioning/faster laptops, they they may be successful for people looking for a low cost system.

    Not so. I have both a tablet and an netbook and will be getting another netbook sometime in the future. A tablet, and in particular an iPad, with its lack of connectivity not to mention its lack of Flash and Java support, can in no way replicate the user experience provided by a a netbook. Yes, a tablet can complement it greatly, but both devices have different functions. The tablet is a device that lends itself to reading, lecturing from, surfing... A netbook is a more interactive device with a lot more tweekability than a tablet provides. Let me just add that in the past 6 months I have seen a growing number of people using netbooks here in NYC, and many of them appear to be tourists. So it seems tourists are opting to carry a netbook more than a tablet for the simple reason that it can for short periods of time replace a notebook and is more portable than a notebook, also less costly to replace than a notebook if stolen.

    The Asus Transformer is suppose to address this, but given its price, it fails. Also people don't feel as comfortable learning a new operating system, and the Asus transformer runs on Android. I myself will not buy an Asus transformer to replace my netbook since I want access to the battery of the device, but also because many of the programs I use cant be replace by Apps.

    spsfinestNobody cares about netbooks anymore, Asus.People who type while commuting and don't want RSI after 10 minutes work care very much about netbooks, actually. Tablets are useful but they're finger-mashers when it comes to serious typing.

    I would too except that I choose longer battery life so the N2800 model makes more sense.
