Bobby "was reading a article on ZDNet suggesting that Netbooks are dead" and says, "Personally I disagree, I still use my Lenovo S10 when I travel.

It's still the perfect traveling (perfect for food trays on planes) and a great school computer". He's wondering what the Tekzilla crew thinks... so we talk netbooks in the video!
