Netbooks, baby!

With nice, compact, powerful laptops like the MacBook, what exactly makes netbooks so enticing? I'm trying to figure that out, and seeing if anything's worth buying... yet.

Here is a good top-10 review from C|Net Crave (in the UK). From Oct. 2008, but it seems reasonably up-to-date.

(Do you have and like your netbook? Ever written a document on it? Use Linux / StarOffice? Read a technical paper in PDF? I'm curious.)

I don't really see the point of the Netbook either - I don't find my MacBook pro to be that much of a burden to carry around.

Personally, with the iPhone, I have found that to be a perfectly acceptable mobile computing platform for times when I don't need/want to carry the laptop.
