Dell will no longer sell Netbooks. Those small 9 and 10 inch Netbooks were successful with buyers over the last few years.
Dell will be concentrating on laptops that deliver better performance rather than the slower Netbooks.
“We sold through the Dell Mini some time ago. We're committed to the highly portable space and have focused on delivering thin + powerful solutions, for which we've seen strong success, particularly in our XPS line,” Matthew Hutchison, director of Dell Global Consumer PR, said in a statement sent to CNET.
Intel has shipped about 70 million Intel Atom chips for netbooks since 2008.
Netbooks are going away and I suspect they will be replaced by Ultrabooks and lesser expensive laptops.
