Netbooks and Nettop Computer Sales Expected to Jump This Year and in 2010

Would You Rather: Netbook or Nettop?

So with the majority of you on board with the whole Netbook craze, let me just throw a little wrench in your wish list and savings plan — it's called the Nettop. Although most people are smitten with the tiny portable computers, some are not so infatuated with the small keyboard, screen, and storage availability to match. Nettops, which made a big impact at the CES conference in Las Vegas this year, are smaller than your average desktop (with screens ranging from 15-19 inches), and come in an all-in-one bundle, which is easy on the eyes and great for maximizing space.

Both netbooks and nettops run Windows or Linux, and come with a smaller price tag than their full-grown counterparts — the eee Top shown above sells for around $550 and comes with a touchscreen. So knowing that the mini computer market will now grow from a laptop-dominated world to include mini desktops (seven million units are expected to sell by next year), which would you rather buy?
