It feels like we just rounded up all the latest Netbooks a couple of months ago, but there are already enough new models out to do it all over again. This time around, we're seeing some new players in the market (Toshiba, Fujitsu), as well as some new takes on the genre from old hands (Asus, HP).
Trends we're seeing include thinner systems, bigger keyboards, and a push in toward lower prices. The HP Mini 110and Acer Aspire Oneare $329 and $299, respectively, while the average price of a similar Netbook was around $499 late last year, falling to $399 in the past six months.
