Higher Resolution you say?
So in one corner you have a high resolution (or at least higher), .....
In the other you have an iPad with a longer batter life.
Last time I looked 99% of netbooks sold had a 1024 x 600 display and the iPad has 1024x 768
Either way I won't buy either until iPad has a USB port or "cheap" netbooks come with at least 1024x768 displays
