For years now, sites have been awarding high marks and 'reasonable' to netbooks, usually netbooks that are minor or utterly feeble revisions.
Its easy to conceded some points to the basic idea of netbooks, cheap, cheerful, reasonable use given the costs.
Instead, we have seen no effort in real spec changes, and no challenge to the staus quo. Creeping price rises now have netbooks firmly in notebook land, and they_are_poor in such company.
Anyone shipping a netbook with less than 2GB to the consumer now needs severe reviews. The 1GB cripples the life out of already crippled devices and is the cheapest thing to fix.
ION should have been a breath of fresh air, and there are hosts of things that could be done, but most vendors stick to the limited spec and refuse to supply consumers with better kit.
The atom/945 deserves nothing from a review standpoint at all. Its dog cheap, and dog nasty, and vendors better refine the rest of the offering to hell AND keep prices fun to get good reviews.
Its still fun to see netbooks shipping wwith great big gaping failures (Dell Mini 1011 trackpad, hahaha).
No netbook is worth more than a £199 price tag, and at that price everything needs to work.
