    Where is VIA in all of this?! They really need to push their Nano on netbook manufacturers. They either have a terrible product and the few benchmarks I've seen are faked, or they just suck at marketing. With a competitive processor market in netbooks they could stay viable. A big thing for me on a 'tablet' well, who are we kidding, an iPad, is its flawless playback of video. When I can see an iPad playback a 720p vid and my Atom powered netbook can't, I get frustrated. I think that maybe a Nano could do it.

    More or less all schools in the district is upgrading from workstations to ordinary tablets and netbooks.

    The students get to chose what tablets - notebooks (or netbooks) the want (one guy even managed to get a Alienware M15X ha ha) and what's interesting is that Acer makes such a statement... there is not a single student in school who have chosen an Acer model as their personal PC.

    Most go for Asus, MSI or even Hewlett-Packard.

    Tablet- netbook. IMO they are the same thing. They both do the same thing, both portable, y not class them in the same market!
