Bankruptcy declared on trying to post netbook news today


There’s far too much netbook-related news today and in the interest of keeping this site from turning into, here’s a bunch of netbook news presented in an easily digestable format. Please enjoy with my compliments.

  • Hey, did you know that a recent update to Apple’s OS X might be reponsible for a pretty major boost in battery life for Hackintosh netbooks? Up to 33% says Wired!
  • Head for the hills! Register Hardware reports that netbook demand dropped 26% last quarter. My ass, Reg Hardware! Netbooks are everywhere!
  • Apparently Gateway has a netbook. Who knew? I sure didn’t. You can get a refurbished one for $239 from if you’re interested. Acer owns Gateway and, as such, Gateway’s netbook looks kind of like an Acer netbook.
  • has a hands-on video with Lenovo’s new IdeaPad S10-2 netbook. Long story short: the specs are similar to the original S10, but the look is different.
  • Verizon will be selling the HP Mini 1151NR netbook for $200 after a $50 mail-in rebate and one of two wildly overpriced two-year service plans at $40/month for 250MB of data or $60/month for 5GB of data.
  • The Asus Eee PC 1008HA will cost $429 and will ship to the US on Monday, the 18th. It looks very slim and light!
  • You can get the MSI Wind U90 for just $194.99 from — but it’s out of stock! Keep an eye out for more of them! [via Obsessable]
  • Toshiba is releasing a netbook! Only in Korea, though. Thanks, Toshiba — our country is too full of netbooks right now!
  • MSI totally dished on its new X400 and X600 ULV laptops. Maybe they’re not even netbooks!
  • And in case you missed them, here’s a post about the Samsung N310 and a post about the MSI U200 if you’re interested.
