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 […]

Ever since the tablet knocked the netbook off its lofty perch in the highly mobile computing market niche, you hardly hear about new releases from netbook manufacturers any more.

Are netbooks relevant? That is certainly a question worth asking, considering the number of tablet devices that have made their way to the market these days, virtually phasing out the netbook.
