Goodbye NbC. It was fun while it lasted…

June 28, 2010 at 12:00 pm

Netbook ChoiceAs some of you may have noticed, we have been posting less and less here on NbC over the last few months. Some of this relates to the lack of news on netbook technology and some relates to our team exploring new opportunities. They say that every road comes to an end and it is with regret that we are today saying goodbye to Netbook Choice. It’s been an exciting journey for us and one that we’ve learned a lot from since we launched the site in March 2009.

Regardless of what you read, netbooks are here to stay, despite the threat from other form-factors such as tablets. There are a number of things to be excited about going forward including the fact that AMD is now on the scene with its Nile platform providing some much needed competition in the netbook processor space. We will also see Google’s Chrome OS and Intel’s dual-core netbook chip released by the end of the year that will, hopefully, lead to some exciting netbook designs.

We haven’t got too much to say about our new project(s) right now, although it is likely to continue in the mobile/portable computing segment. Never say never, but we may even resurrect NbC at some point in the future if the conditions are right. Until then, thanks to all of our loyal readers who have visited the site regularly. We wouldn’t have lasted this long without you.

    Aah … good things always come to an end .. or perhaps they won’t ;-) so do keep us posted about your new project. Thanks Tej for great website, all the best !!

    Many thanks for your support guys and for creating a debate in the comments section. It was always much appreciated.

    As I’ve said in the main post, NbC may live again at some point in the future. It’s just that right now we’re too busy to do the site (and our readers) justice. Rather than there being long periods of inactivity we decided this was the best course of action for now. We’ll keep you posted on future developments!

    You’ve had some great information, I believe that there will be another surge in netbooks – people doing any extensive writing or data input will soon see through the glamour of the touchpad.

    Any chance you send us a note on your next projects?

    I’m sorry to see if go since I was one of the first here along with Bob :’(

    I did sense something was up but shrugged it off.

    Whatever the next project is, I’ll be hoping to stick around, been a pleasure to moderate on here :)

  22. Tej said:

    @Chris – I know, what are the chances of two netbook sites being pulled in the same week! People will start to think netbooks are doomed now, which is of course absurd!

    Keep up the good work over at! :)

    Players should be able to put a price tag
    when trading Pokemon, that way you will have those notorious pirates out there
    selling Magikarp for one million dollars. In addition, our
    editorial team hand reviews the cheat codes to make sure that they work so you don’t waste your time.
    Either pokemon go pokepieces will

    La aportación que has producido me ha parecido muy servible, no obstante creo que se podría ahondar

    De todas formas, muchas gracias por tu participación. Estaré
