And what's so "netbook" about it, anyway? Sounds exactly as "iPod compatible" earbuds and "Vista optimized" RAM... S**t, I hate PR language.

The economy is in the shitter, so PC developers are turning to netbooks in order to spark sells. Buffalo is just trying to feed off this new trend.

Damn right. Either people are getting smarter, or poorer (much more probable) - anyway, fewer are inclined to buy new stuff, given they already have enough of it (or similar) in stock. I don't think vendors are going to get this straight with new labels, though. Who knows, we'll wait and see.
