More Evidence of Netbook Sales Decline [guardian.co.uk]
Netbook sales are slowing as people consider buying tablet computers particularly Apple's iPad instead, according to data released separately by research companies Gartner and IDC with their analysis of third-quarter computer sales worldwide.

Overall, sales of PCs grew slower than had been expected. Gartner said 88.3m were sold in the third quarter, up 7.6% compared with the same period a year ago when 82m were sold, but below its earlier forecast of 12.7% growth (which would have meant 92.5m sold).

IDC, which uses a different method to measure sales, said there were 89.7m sold, up 11% (80.8m) but nearly 3% below its expectations (which would have seen 92m sold).

i think it might also have something to do with people finally figuring out 90% of netbooks on the market are slow and crappy.

im posting form my netbook now and it runs good but its ONLY because its running 2GB DDR3 DUAL CHANNEL and has invidia ion.

if you just buy the run of the mill netbook you'll have a painful experience.
