Stagnant netbooks since end of 2008

To mirror what was mentioned above, my late 2008 Dell Mini 9 with its 1.6GHz Atom is now approaching its 3rd birthday - has there been a doubling or tripling of the power of netbooks for the same price and form factor in those 3 years? Nope!

I went looking for an upgrade but there are only small increases in power out there (chip wise not battery capacity) which is a real shame.
