Michael Dell bashes netbooks

Posted on Thursday, October 15 2009 @ 19:06:16 CEST by

Michael Dell recently spoke at a Churchill Club dinner event in Santa Clara, he was big on services and the launch of Windows 7, but oddly enough he didn't have anything positive to say about netbooks. It's always strange to see a CEO thrashing one of his company's products, even if it is only a low-end one:
One of the biggest surprises in the session with Dell was that even though his company has some well-received netbooks, such as the Mini 10v, he really didn’t have one positive thing to say about them or the fast-growing netbook market. “With the netbook,” he said “if you take a user who is used to a 14-inch or 15-inch notebook, and then give them a 10-inch netbook, a few hours later they want their big screen back.” He characterized netbooks as “not a replacement for a high-end machine for an experienced user,” and noted their “slower performance.”

Most folks think they are just getting a cheap notebook, and they are. But it's when the real meaning of "cheap" settles in with all the things they can't do, that folks get tired of the novelty.

They won't die, but the fury will be over in a year or two.
