Hay un montón de críticas por ahí que comparan los últimos teléfonos, las últimas tabletas y los últimos modelos de portátiles, pero muy pocos son los que hacen referencia a algo más de 18 meses de edad. Most people don’t upgrade their kit anywhere near that frequently which makes the comparisons rather useless. En el 4-5 marco de tiempo del año, que es un ciclo de actualización más típico para la mayoría de la gente ha habido grandes cambios en la potencia de cálculo disponible.

En junio 2008 I was asked for help to choose a device for a family member which would meet basic online and app needs whilst being as portable as possible. El Asus EeePC 700 había sido puesto en libertad un año antes y la nueva 901 with the new Intel Atom processor had just become available. It did everything requiredcapable of running Windows XP, with wireless-n and at around 1Kg it was just powerful enough, and impressively portable. Battery life was way beyond anything else comparable and could only be matched by spending an order of magnitude more.

Saltar a junio 2012 – a scant 4 years later and my mobile phone contract expires. After long deliberations I eventually opted for the Samsung Galaxy S3 over the HTC One X. Having spet considerable time looking at specs it dawned on me that superficially it had specs not all that dissimilar to the good old eeePC. Always interested in the progress of these things I did a quick comparison

The specs speak for themselves. The phone is much thinner, lighter and more powerful. It comes with comparable storage and RAM and has better connectivity and a better camera. The eeePC is of course still much more suitable for working on word or excel documents, pero no es tan grande para que la propia.

I suspect that most eeePC’s were, como el que en mi caso, bought for basic internet access. Modern smartphones have made this function completely redundant. People needing to do serious document work aren’t likely to opt for a netbook eitheran ultrabook or similar notebook is far more likely to be deemed suitable because you just can’t get away from needing a good size physical screen and real keyboard. Whilst the demise of the netbook due to tablets was much exaggerated, I believe the modern smartphone really will put an end to the netbook market almost completely.
