Acer vs Asus
"DisplayBank's prediction for 2009 puts Acer on 11.3m units and Asus on 6.45m"
Certainly judging on past experience that would seem feasible. I love my Acer Aspire One, it's probably the best netbook around at the moment.
But Asus have announced some pretty interesting new models for 2009, including touch screen and a tablet form factor. By contrast, Acer's idea of innovation is to make their machine an inch bigger. I hope for Acer's sake that they pull something a little more interesting out of the bag, or we're likely to see the above figures reversed before the year's out.
