In what is part MacBook review / part Farewell to netbooks, GBM’s Matt Dillon lays out why he’s kissed netbooks goodbye. It is a great read, well written, and has some very good arguments on why a person should think twice before purchasing that next netbook. Check it out.
Comparing a netbook to a notebook such as the (13″) MacBook Pro is like comparing a Geo Tracker and a Hummer; they’re in two completely different categories. Unfortunately, I had succumbed to the myth that a netbook could meet my basic computing tasks while a home-based and more powerful computer would accomplish my intensive computing requirements.
I gathered together the computers I had in my house which included a few dead clunkers in the garage, an older Motion M1300 Tablet PC, an HP desktop running Windows XP circa 2001, an Eee PC 1000HE, and a 1.83 Ghz Intel Core Duo MacBook, and hit up craigslist and eBay to liquidate. I had the necessary funds available after about two weeks of auctions and sales. It was clear that I wanted a computer with plenty of power and long battery life. I was seeking a notebook that would replace the need for both a netbook and a more powerful desktop.
