Apple’s Steve Jobs Kills the Netbook — is the PC Next?


Still the bells; silence the critics; let the band play on: no, I’m not talking about the UK administration’s dissociated reaction to the passing of a former Prime Minister, instead I’m discussing Apple [AAPL], the iPad and the final extinction of netbooks.

Netbooks aren’t better at anything

Steve Jobs saw it coming. He explicitly referred to netbooks during the iPad launch, dismissing the whole category as follows:

"They’re slow, they have low quality displays and they run clunky old PC software. They’re not better than a laptop at anything, they’re just cheaper: they’re just cheap laptops. We don’t think they’re a third category device, but we think we’ve got something that is, and we’d like to show it to you today for the first time. And we call it, the iPad," he said.
