  1. You know back in November when I got my Acer Aspire One 8.9″ netbook I really thought this was the best thing around, and I still do. Since then there has been a mad dash for everyone to make the just right netbook. Well the bottom line is, “it ain’t going to happen.” Acer was just fine with 1 new 10″ inch netbook, now they are making 3 additional ones and let the truth be told there is not enough difference in them to make a difference to the average consumer.

    So I am starting a movement to stop the this netbook madness. Companies are not going to sale anymore netbooks of the same size weather they just have one model or 3,000 models like Asus. People are going to go for what is cheap and budget friendly. In this economy most consumers are not looking at different models from one company but looking at different models from several companies and which ever is cheaper and cost efficient to there wallets.

    Netbooks are great devices and I love my Acer 8.9″ and me personally as a consumer I do not want to go to Acer’s website and try to figure out which 10 inch netbook I want when they all have the same specifications. Thats not marketing thats stupid.
