Default Netbooks are not Completely Dead. Behold the HP dm1z!

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.digitaltrends.com/laptop-reviews/hp-pavilion-dm1z-review/' target='_blank'>http://www.digitaltrends.com/laptop...on-dm1z-review/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Netbooks, having enjoyed so much excitement during their early days, have now retreated for the most part from the public eye. Part of the reason is likely the rise in tablets, and now Ultrabooks, but netbooks themselves are also partially responsible. There simply has not been much movement in the market."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1323886555.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 0px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>It is true that netbooks are no longer the hot buy they once were.&nbsp; Tablets are all the rage, and interest in Ultrabooks is increasing.&nbsp; Still, netbooks are still around, and while there has been very little progress with them, either in horsepower or design, they still provide a very portable choice for someone on the go.&nbsp; The only development I have really seen with netbooks is that they are slowly improving in their graphics capability.&nbsp; With more capable GPUs, things like HD video playback is getting better.&nbsp; Pricing, however, varies.&nbsp; While newer models like the latest dm1z are still a bit high at just shy of $400, you can find older models bumping around at half the price.&nbsp; Does anyone remember when ultra-portable laptops cost thousands of dollars?</p>

I owned the prior generation one and it's most definitely not a netbook. The only thing it has in common with a netbook is the size; other than that it's a notebook.

Jason has one too.
