If you're new here, you may first want to read Hello, the introductory page that contains details on what Netbook Era is all about or you may want to check out the netbook buying guide right away or you may simply want to subscribe to the RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

For the first time ever, netbook sales have overtaken desktops’ globally. That’s big news and it confirms the prediction that I once made that eventually desktops would only be found in enterprises and governments. 

I also suspect that netbooks are playing a big role in the demise of desktops. Why? Because Acer managed to have a record quarter and we also know that the Acer Aspire One became the best-selling netbook so it’s a simple matter of putting the two together.

Are netbooks killing desktops? 

It seems like it.
