What kind of crap is going on with netbooks? Why I wanted a netbook, but did not buy one? Why I do not want today's netbooks even for free?
Why do I need the netbook?
First of all, I do not need it for the movies, games, and so on. I need the netbook for my work, namely I want to view sites, check my e-mail, do word processing and reading, work with the spreadsheets, and some more. This implies two requirements: the screen and the keyboard.
Secondly, it is clear that the device of this class I need for mobile work. This raises the requirements for a size, weight and the battery life.
Of course, there are some other requirements: the casing material, communication interfaces, etc. I will talk about them below.
