The eeePC had languished unused for several months, and with the arrival of the iPod Touch, it was clear that it wouldn't get used any more. The iMac gets used a lot, and the iPod Touch is fine for MSN and Facebook, although of course, the clincher is that the iPT is also a games platform.
I, on the other hand, am happier with the eeePC (now running Karmic Koala under the easyPeasy netbook interface). I get Flash, decent browsers and better text entry. Of course, I couldn't survive with the eeePC as my main device, but as my sofa companion for evening online interaction (e.g. tweeting my frustration with TV), it works well.
So I guess Steve Jobs' remarks about netbooks need to be filtered through the age demographic. I guess I'm in the netbook generation.
