yeah but the $199 netbooks are worse than any $400 tablet you can get. A full os with only the minimum required specs is not faster than a tablet which has a customized OS (well, iOS or Android, but the point remains), especially the ones you see for $199. The best you can do with one of those- keeping in mind, again, that the ones you find for $199 are most likely 8" screens or below which is at minimum the smallest tablets you'll find out there- with the specs they have is doing web surfing, reading a book, etc... and you'll get much better battery life from a tablet as well.
I'm willing to hear out an argument for this, though. Show me the models and specs that prove it.Ripper said:Netbooks at 199 are clearly a better buy at half the price.
