Netbook Demand Drops. Is This The Demise Of the Netbook Era?

Apparently the demand for netbooks is down because in November, fewer units were sold compared to October. Is that reason enough to panic and say that indeed netbooks are a fad? Nope. It means nothing. All computer sales and as a matter of fact anything that’s selling today is facing lower demand. We are in a recession, remember? In a recession, demand generally drops.

Now if laptop and desktop sales were going through the roof and the netbook curve was south bound then I would jump of the Netbook Era ship.

So, no reason to panic, netbook sales are down but not out. I would even bet that in the whole computer sector, netbooks are actually the best selling category!
