Netbooks take Europe by sturm

Gartner and IDC are reporting that netbooks, those ultralight PCs everyone loves, have taken Europe by storm, hitting about 10 percent of the PC market. These mini-PCs are essentially a brave new world for PC makers who have been facing falling prices, profits, and demand in standard laptops and desktops.

Asus and Acer are winning the race and many of the sales come through cellphone suppliers who sell netbooks along with WWAN service.
