Hi, I was just wondering if the chromebooks are considered netbooks. I'm wondering because i saw the specs the earlier, 11.6'(Acer) 12.1' (Samsung). I don't really like how small they are are. Do you think it'd be a problem? Do you think they'll release a bigger notebook (say 15' to 18')? Thanks

Maybe at a later date when they need it but i don't see a need for 15" ultra portable notebook for say this purpose of a cloud os.

I do not think that Chromebooks fall under netbooks. While the size is similar, the fact that it runs a new operating system is going to create an entirely new category for computers.

even if it were a different category, why would you want a bigger size for it? it is minimalistic os.. minimalistic os with a big screen doesnt sound right..

I think of it as a netbook as far as the size is concerned, but other than that, it's a chromebook... it's unique... until that is, they take over the world and everyone is using them. Then netbook will be an archaic term no one remembers!

I like to look at it as a notebook running on a Chrome OS but as Zora has hinted, the fact of the matter is that they herald an entirely new age for computers.

I was wrong!

Alright guys, I hate to admit it but I was wrong! Hah, I was surfing the net yesterday and I came across the answer to this question. The answer is: YES, Google Chromebooks are netbooks!
