If it has an 11.6" screen, is it still a netbook?
Maybe its just me, but the trend of netbooks growing and bloating up is a bit worrying. I know there are still 10.1" books and similar ones around, but the 8.9" seems to be all but extinct now.
Personally, I thought 8.9" was perfect, I'm still enjoying my little AOA-150 a year later. The typing is fine after you get used to it, and the small size more than made up for it. I can appreciate a better CPU & GPU, ability to handle more than 1.5GB memory, etc, but these things are getting big, most well over 3 lbs now with these 11.6" netbooks.
Example... the new Aspire AS1410 measures 11.22" w x 8.03" l x 0.87-1.18" h. Not bad mind you, though it fails my personal "smaller than a sheet of paper" (US Letter size) test. My AOA-150 measures 9.80″ w x 6.70″ l x 1.14″ h. That's perfect for carrying anywhere easily. And it may not seem like much, but the AS1410 is roughly 14.5% wider and nearly 20% longer than the AOA-150.

I still think anything that can't fit within a standard sheet of paper isn't a netbook. Maybe there needs to be another category?
