Sorry to take this topic off course but not long ago people were paying close to £1000 for a device which was small enough to fit into your pocket.

It was the wave of UMPC devices which never really took off due to their huge cost, then we got slightly lower power but just as small devices and cheap, why do people complain that they can get a laptop for the same price?!

Not complaining that I can get a laptop at the same price, just the fact that M$ tax has pushed the price of netbooks through the roof. :(
