Not enough profit in netbooks?

Sources cited by DigiTimes are now claiming that both HP and Dell will be reducing their investment in 10-inch netbooks. HP may even be considering not offering netbooks in the 10.1-inch size.

 

Instead, HP is said to be focusing on 11.6-inch notebooks with AMD processors because there is more profit in those machines. Yes, everything is based on profits. Acer, Asus, and Samsung are still going to be in the 10.1-inch netbook market in a big way.
