Agreed. i have two notebooks with a 11.6 inch screens:
One has Core i5 with 6 gigs of RAM
the Second has Core i7 with 4 gigs of RAM..
Small and powerful with full keyboards...better for production in my opinion than a tablet..and the both way just over 1kilo each..

The only coherent difference I've seen mentioned is that netbooks don't have CD drive. (No idea if that's a universal standard, but that's how it was described to me.)
Tablets are media consumption devices; netbooks/laptops/desktops are production devices.
Most people aren't actually involved in much computer-based production, so tablets are likely to become the dominant form over the next several years. However, authors don't write novels on tablets; movie-makers don't make films on them; accountants don't aggregate data from multiple spreadsheets on them; magazine editors don't do layout and photo-touchup on them.
format--and as far as I can tell, it's not sold in my country.)
