Why don’t buy Mini Netbook from Because it’s time to drop the Netbook label

Need a light laptop?  Wait until the Inspiron 11z comes to Canada.
The Mini Netbook 10 and 10v are going to phase out soon, that’s why you see the price of 10v is going down from C$369 to C$349 to C$329 in just a few weeks.  Don’t be fooled by the commercial bombardment unless you really need it now.  Read this article from CNet, you will find the same (actually less) configured Netbook is even expensive than a new light Notebook.
