Netbooks unlikely to replace laptops according to Dell

May 21, 2010

According to Steve Felice (head of Dell’s small and mid size business division) netbooks are unlikely to replace traditional laptops. He recently stated “…you see feedback from customers that are disappointed when they gave up their notebook for a netbook and find that it’s not quite as fast or doesn’t have quite the same functionality”  His statement seem to be an accurate representation as the research firm IDC reported that sales of components for netbooks dropped in the first quarter of this year. 

In general netbooks have slower processors, less memory, smaller screens and slower hard drives.  These components are selected because they use less power thereby conserving battery life.  Our recommendation is to visit a retail store and try a netbook out for at least 15 minutes to make sure  it’s a good match for you.
