Dell to focus on thin and powerful machines

Dell has announced that it no longer plans to sell netbooks. The company is exiting the netbook market as the popularity of the machines wane in the face of competition from tablets and thin and powerful notebooks. Dell will not be making any more netbooks.

The netbook was popular for several years until the iPad hit the market and then the popularity of netbooks took a sharp downward turn for the worst when tablets like the iPad became so popular. Dell will continue to focus on thin and powerful machines like its new 15z that has been selling well.

Matthew Hutchison, director of Dell Global Consumer PR told CNET, "We sold through the Dell Mini some time ago. We're committed to the highly portable space and have focused on delivering thin + powerful solutions, for which we've seen strong success, particularly in our XPS line."
