Obsolete Laptop is a Netbook?

While checking CostCo laptops and netbooks, I noticed that the slightly larger than usual netbook HANNSbook SU4100 has stats very similar to my Acer Extensa 4620Z laptop.

I knew my laptop was a few years old and obsolete.  I didn't know it was now equivalent to a wimpier class of computer!

Well, sort of.  I now enjoy two 1.6 GHz processors, and the netbook has only a single 1.3 GHz processor.  But for most of what I do the netbook probably has very similar performance, and its 1366 by 768 screen would be a lot like the laptop's 1280 by 800 screen.  It also has triple the hard drive space and costs about half what than the laptop did.
