What a difference a year makes. Whilst Asus broke the mould with the first nine-inch netbook, which had everyone clamouring to get lighter, smaller, cheaper, plasticky-er, the time has apparently come to lay that particular trendsetter to rest.
From now on, they’ll only offer the 10-inch model, which apparently was making up 95% of their sales anyway. Still, we’ll be sad to see the little fella go, having spent many happy press conferences feeling smug about being able to pull a laptop out of our ladylike clutchbags.[via electricpig]
