ASUS And Acer Bow Out Of Netbook Market

At one point it would seem that netbooks could be the next big thing. After all they were pretty tiny in size meaning that portability and mobility were not an issue. However over the years, especially with the introduction of smartphones and tablets, not to mention Ultrabooks, it would seem that the relevancy of netbooks was slowly dying and come 2013, it looks like some of the netbooks bigger manufacturers such as ASUS and Acer have announced that starting from the 1st of January 2013, they would be ceasing the production of their netbook lineup. This means that if you still want a netbook for whatever reason, you’ll probably have to move quick since remaining stock at retailers will not be replenished once they are gone. Personally the netbook did not have that big an impact on me as Ultrabooks and tablets did, but what do you guys think?
