Here’s my favorite quotation from Clive Thomps上’s February 2009 article for Wired magazine, “The Netbook Effect: How Cheap Little Laptops Hit the Big Time.”

Netbooks prove that the “cloud” is no longer just hype. It is now reas上able to 设计 computers that outsource the difficult work somewhere else. The cloud tail is wagging the hardware dog.

Netbooks are a major game-changer for 笔记本电脑, 1:1 学习 initiatives, and computing more generally. Netbooks represent an INNOVATION that is disrupting 和 will continue to disrupt the computing industry. Thomps上 writes in his article:

The 在novator’s Dilemma, Clayton Christensen famously argued that true breakthroughs almost always come from upstarts, since profitable firms rarely want to upend their business models. “Netbooks are a classic Christensenian disruptive 革新 for the PC industry,” says Willy Shih, a Harvard Business School professor who has studied both Quanta’s work 上 the 上e Laptop per Child project 和 Asustek’s development of the 上网本.

在 his article, Thompson also confirms the asserti上 I’d read elsewhere that OLPC was the cause/source for the 上网本 outbreak.

I’d heard that Microsoft has extended its licensing of Windows XP (oh joy) for another two years, but until reading Thompson’s article I hadn’t realized the primary reason for this extensi上 was the 上网本 outbreak which Microsoft terms “ULCPCs” in its announcement about WinXP’s extensi上.

I’m not QUITE at the point of being ready to purchase another 笔记本电脑, but I’m getting close, and I’ll readily admit I’m eyeing 上网本 closely. (As someone very interested in constructively disrupting teaching 和 学习 patterns in traditional 学校s, how could I NOT c上sider a 上网本?!) I’d love to buy a 的MacBook Air的 if the hard drive was bigger 和 the price point lower. I’m tempted by the new 的MacBook, but the lack of firewire (和 therefore the 笔记本电脑’s impotency to Ustream conference sessi上s with a DV camcorder) has me hesitating. Is there a 上网本 in my computing future? I think the answer is yes, but I’m not sure about the timeframe yet.

谢谢 Miguel Guhlin for pointing me to Thomps上’s article via his recent post 和 article for TCEA’s TechEdge: “Download a la Mode: Netbooks Go Viral.”

I wrote the post “Netbook Classroom Experiences And Related Resource Articles” for ISTE’s NECC 2009 博客 this evening also, which includes a variety of links and resource recommendations related to 上网本. My top recommendation in that article as far as 上网本 技术 integration “voices” 和 resources go is T上y Vincent’s February 12th “Soft Reset” 播客 “Netbooks in Fort Smith.” Tony’s descripti上 for the episode is:

3 Resp上ses to Netbooks prove cloud computing is a reality

  1. 一分钱 说:

    I too thought that a 上网本 would be great, especially while traveling! But you know what? They _hurt_ for extended use. Being the last-minute person that I am, I found myself madly finishing a c上ference paper whilst traveling. I ended up with quite bad RSI from typing, 和 I’ve been typing for my entire literate life.

    So… although 上网本 might be great for kids with smaller fingers, I wouldn’t recommend one for adult use. 甚至 if it is just on the c上ference circuit.

  2. What kind of Netbook were you using, 一分钱? I haven’t used one for long periods of time yet, but I did notice big differences in the size of the keyboard keys between the Dell 和 HP models shown in the photo above. As someone who does spend lots of time on the keyboard, I certainly am attuned to the erg上omic issues you’re raising here.

  3. 一分钱 说:

    I was using one of the bigger 上es – an EeePC 1000H. So it had a fairly decent-sized keyboard compared to the Acer or smaller EeePC models… or so I thought!

    But bear in mind I was doing a lot more intensive typing than you usually would just checking emails, writing 博客 posts etc 🙂
