The modern netbooks/small low-cost laptops we have in Asia have certainly improved since 2007-2009. Most of them are now dual-core CPU, 2GB RAM, reasonable sized hard drives, full-blown Windows 7 or desktop Linux OS, USB3.0, 3-4 USB ports, VGA out, 3G/4G, 4-5 hour battery life.

I believe the original definition of a netbook specified 1GB RAM maximum and a small hard drive. Think it was Microsoft that would only supply XP for machines of no larger than 10 inch and only 1GB RAM maximum
