Netbook Madness

I've been watching the whole netbook frenzy with a bit of skepticism. Do regular people actually use netbooks or are they just nerd toys? People are now installing OS X on them and I totally get the idea of putting together an ultra portable Mac at a quarter of the price of a MacBook Air, but the tiny keyboards and crappy screens just do nothing for me. The idea of a bluetooth keyboard matched to my iPhone gets me much more excited.

Regardless, Apple was very coy about Netbooks on their earnings call this week. I wouldn't be surprised if Apple comes out with some piece of hardware in the $400-$600 range aimed generally at the Netbook market. I just hope it is not a crappy little computer. Wow me Apple.
