Online availability of Lenovo netbooks is slowly being withdrawn. Those who wish to purchase Lenovo netbooks would not find them on the official online store in the near future. As it is, the present stock is quite low.
Lenovo is doing this since tablets became the latest craze of the time rather than netbooks. Lenova introduced the IdeaPad K1 and IdeaPad A1 and it appears to be making good sales with them. Netbooks have been found to be fast ceding ground to the new age tablet devices, which have certain inherent advantages. Tablet devices generally have better battery back-up times than netbooks. The tablet PCs are also more conveniently portable devices. Further, netbook processors tend to be quite slow. The tablets, with their ever advancing features, are naturally the choice of the people today.
Before this, Dell, Acer and HP were the big time netbook makers who have been trying to shift focus away from netbooks, though none have been able to make any significant mark with their individual tablet offerings.
