Laptops overtake desktops in overall sales
I'm interested to see that laptop computers outsold desktop units for the first time last quarter, according to market research. This was apparently due to the new wave of 'netbook computers', much smaller, lighter and cheaper than full-featured laptop computers, but quite adequate to surf the Web, check e-mail, and so on.
I've seen these new small laptops, but I've never used one. I have a HP Pavilion full-feature laptop, plus my desktop, and tend to use the latter for all work at home, reserving the laptop for travel.
How about you, readers? Are any of you using the new 'Netbook' small laptops? If so, how have you found them? Do they do everything you need, or are they lacking in any key features? I'd love to hear your feedback in Comments, please.
