So many netbooks, so little time


Actually, that isn’t true at all. I have the time; it’s the interest in the low-cost netbook craze that I’m missing.

It’s obvious that this mini notebook trend won’t be short-lived, especially now that major companies like Sony and Dell are involved, and it’s tough to ignore the deluge of new devices being revealed whenever I refresh my Google Reader feeds list. But rather than feign interest by covering the netbooks expected to be shown at Computex this week and elsewhere afterward, I’ve decided to use this post to compile a list of links where those interested in 8.9- to 10-inch netbooks can go for more information.

The list isn’t exhaustive but will be updated regularly with launch news and official details. So if you’re interested, check back often or bookmark this page to make sure you don’t miss anything.
