the Wife bought one
One day my wife called me at work (I'm a web developer) and said "I bought a computer for $225 at Meiers" What! you didn't consult me? I thought to myself what cheap piece of junk did she buy now. I was surprised when I examined her Acer netbook. Also I had a problem getting her to use the desktop. Now though she loves her little netbook and won't let me touch it for fear I would mess it up. So I believe these netbooks have introduced a whole new public that was holding back from joining the computer generation.
