Display sizes are much more steady at 9-10inches. It's the one one which breaks the tech fashions as of late is the Asus N10. You might have to pay somewhat greater than the Asus N10 is exclusive amongst netbooks, particularly for various switching expertise and enhancements.

It is a 10.2-inch system from the corporate that began the netbook with the Eee laptop. The Asus N10 options identified CPU, RAM and OS.
