Dell says bye bye to consumer netbooks Dell has officially decided to kill its consumer netbooks.
The company will still sell enterprise models, but it is unclear for how much longer. Dell has already removed the netbooks from its websites, including the once very popular Inspiron Mini line.

Other companies, like Asus and Toshiba, remain committed to the small Intel Atom netbooks but Dell is moving on to the new trend, ultrabooks. To ensure it will not come back to netbooks, the company says it will not use Intel's forthcoming Cedar Trail platform, at all.

For those worried that the tablet/netbook Inspiron Duo would be discontinued, Dell says no, as it continues to sell well.

Adds Marketing Director Alison Gardner: "Thin and powerful is where it is at for us."
