Have had two netbooks now, the Advent version of the MSI original Wind and a Samsung NC20. Both had some good points but as an overall package they were both wanting.

There is nothing to this new Wind netbook that if you currently own another netbook or have owned one in the past thats going to mkae you think 'i will swich to that one'.

The 10" Netbook needs to take th next step in its evolution or it will suffer extinction.

Recently i purchased an Asus UL30A which so far as an ultra portable its very good particularly for the price i paid (£349). Great battery life, good display, fairly stylish, can mutli task to a degree without struggling and fairly light.

The 13" form factor though is not quite bag small.

If Asus (or any other manufacturer) was to squeeze the components of say the UL30A into a 10" Eee casing, retain the 1366 x 768 resolution and perhaps add the nVidia Optimus technology as well they would have a killer netbook. Add an SSD as well and its on the road to perfection. I think as well that most people would accept a little widening of the girth as well to make it possible, there seems an obsessivness with being ultra thin whereas as the real size problems for portability are length and width.

Agree completely.

Although some manufacturers HAVE squeezed high-end specs into little form factors, that's usually accompanied by higher prices...

Something like the might be just the thing though.

Oh no, not again...a perfectly functional machine marred by a "springy isolation/chiclet" keyboard. I'm sure they hold aesthetic appeal for some, and help reduce the thickness of the machine ...but, for me at list, they're near-unusable. Please, manufacturers, offer your consumers a choice when it comes to "features" like this - they're a deal breaker.
