Is the Recession the Real Reason Behind the Netbook Craze?

I tend to like Business Week’s headlines. They do a great job at capturing my attention. Invasion of the Netbooks is a piece that explains why netbooks are computers that should be taken seriously and that even Microsoft is sitting up and paying attention.

Some quotes: “Amid the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, computer makers and retailers reckon it’s better to sell a cheaper product than none at all.” That’s a comment made after it was mentioned that some computer makers do not like netbooks because they are not that profitable. They also include a pretty cool slide show with quite a selection of netbooks.
