anyone who actually picked up a netbook could tell that they were garbage

I'm going to skip a lot of things I am inclined to say, and end with two observations (as someone who hopped onto the "netbook" train right at the start):

* The 7" screen of the original Eee 701 was indeed pretty much too small

* The 10" screen of later generations was perfectly fine, except I started using the netbook as my primary computing device at which point it was not fine. (Netbooks are not primary computing devices; the fault was mine)
