Asus ups luxury netbooks up to 12 inches, makes them not netbooks anymore
Asus' S121 follows on the heels of its luxury netbook, the S101, with the only major difference being a horizontal expansion to 12 inches.. at which point, the designation of "netbook" no longer applies. For some reason, this really irks Rob and me: it heralds a future in which all laptops are considered netbooks by cynical marketers, right up until the point that the term loses all its cachet and is abandoned wholesale and industry-wide. That's the way of things, of course, and fighting against the tide of PR drones misusing the term they
coined is folly... but we gnash our teeth and give one another oiled angry hugs in the BBG
chat channel none the less.
