78% of People leaning towards iPad vs Netbook

A recent study conducted by Retrevo Pulse showed that 78% of consumers that were looking to purchase a Netbook were leaning towards an iPad.

Consumers are leaning more towards the sleek and sexy tablets rather than cheaply built Netbooks.  The study indicates that consumers that were struggling between an iPad or a Netbook were leaning towards an iPad.

The study also shows that when Steve Jobs announced the iPad release, consumers that were going to buy a Netbook 30% of them held off to buy the iPad. Further study concludes that Laptops are still holding quite a large lead over Netbooks overall most likely because Laptops with full size keyboards are becoming more and more cheap.

What do you think, do you see the iPad taking over the Netbook market? I honestly think that Netbooks have their own place as the iPad has it’s own. Please, leave your opinions.

    I have never seen the point of a Netbook myself; if you need a portable computer, get a laptop.

    At least the iPad fills a niche, for people who want a portable internet appliance but can’t be bothered to use a laptop.

    I completely agree with you Robert, I have a laptop and an iPad the only reason I see to get a Netbook is to have laptop like functions more portable. I also agree that the iPad serves a Niche, and it does and it does it well. Same as the Netbook and Laptop markets.
