I'm not sure I would call a netbook a "full fledged computer". Sure they can do all the basic stuff, like web browsing and word processing, but their specs are too weak to handle many programs. Plus they don't even possess an optical drive unless you purchase an external one.
"Basic stuff" is what most people use their computers for. Netbooks can handle most programs; nothing short of a modern game or quality modeling software is going to be a real showstopper on a netbook. The lack of optical drives is a disadvantage, but it is becoming less important as content and programs begin to be more widely distributed online.

How many people that you know do not wear a watch because they they have time display on their phone? I know one such person.
I do something similar; I have a time display on my iPod nano (which I pretty much always carry), so I don't bother with a watch.
