“Analysts and experts at Wharton agree that netbooks will be disruptive to the PC industry, but it’s not clear in what way. Will netbooks poach sales of laptops? Are netbooks replacements for smartphones?” - The Net Impact of Netbooks? It Depends on Who Uses Them for What

Everyone can’t help but wonder what role netbooks will play. Some think that they’re a fad (Are Netbooks a Fad?), others think that they will kill full sized laptops (7 Good Reasons to Buy a Netbook over a Laptop Computer) while other think that just like the smartphone they will be niche electronic products meaning that only a select group of users will purchase them.

I tend to believe that netbooks, laptops and smartphones will live happily together. Full size laptops will still lead in usage but I am not sure who will come up on top between netbooks and smartphones. I am willing to bet that netbooks will in the end. I will write a full length article on why soon.
