In our last Quick Poll, we investigated the future for netbooks, now a well-established class of notebook PC.

Almost a third of respondents said netbooks would influence other types of laptops, with portables shrinking and making netbooks redundant. This was closely followed by a quarter of voters who believed increasingly sophisticated mobile devices would overtake netbooks.

However, the remaining proportion acknowledged the place currently held by netbooks in the education market, as a second notebook option for travelers, and for those on a budget.
