Even though many sites have announced the “death of the netbook” and say if people want a netbook they should just buy an iPad, I disagree. Some people would like a lightweight portable computer for $299 that can surf the web and runs Windows. If we wanted to spend $600 for the iPad then we’d just buy a normal laptop.

Acer has a new netbook coming in the Aspire One lineup, an 11.6″ netbook called the V5. Not alot of 11.6″ netbooks have been released lately as companies have moved more into the “ultrabook” category as the economy has improved. There are still alot of people that don’t want to spend $700 on a laptop though, and can get by with something that doesn’t have a quad core processor or 8Gb of RAM. This is where the Aspire One V5 comes in, with an expected price tag of less than $500.

The new Asus Transformer Prime is a netbook/tablet combo that works incredibly well. The 10.1″ tablet integrates flawlessly with the included keyboard dock to make a nice little netbook. It’s very light (580g) and thin (8.3mm) and has a metallic brushed outer shell which looks great and resists fingerprints.

Asus has finally announced the US availability date of it’s Tablet/netbook combo, and it’s April 26th. The tablet is sold out everwhere for the moment, though, but you can still preorder one for $399 from amazon. The TF101 Transformer is a 10.1″ tablet computer that comes with a laptop dock, letting it function as a netbook also.

The tablet features an NVIDIA® Tegra™ 2 dual-core processor to power its Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system. It has the ASUS Waveshare interface skin which makes for a nice user interface. This is designed to make the Transformer’s media playback, social networking and game play features quick and simple to access.

Other software that comes pre-installed with the Transformer is MyLibrary, MyNet, MyCloud, a file manager and a PC Sync utility. More apps can be downloaded using a WiFi network conforming to WLAN 802.11 b/g/n specifications at 2.4GHz. Bluetooth is included as well.

The display is 1280×800 resolution with LED backlighting and can output HD video at 720p while the built-in SRS Sound technology provides a dynamic 3D stereo audio. Videos shot using the rear-facing 5MP camera can be output to an HDTV via a mini HDMI 1.3A output port (at 1080p, according to ASUS). There’s also a 1.2MP camera on the front that is designed for video conferencing. Other interface options on the tablet include a 2-in-1 Audio Jack (Headphone/Mic-in) and Micro SD card reader. Also in the specs is optional Adobe® Flash® 10.2 support that can be obtained through an upgrade available online at the Android Market.

The reviews so far are very good for the tablet, and if it’s ever in stock again I’m sure people will be waiting in line to get one.
