We don't have to spell it out for you at this point: the netbook market is getting very crowded, with dozens of contenders from Acer, Asus, Everex, Dell, HP, MSI, and other firms fighting it out in the $250-600 range. We shared our preferences in our back-to-school netbook guide last week, and that leaves us with one question: what do you think is the best netbook in the market right now? That's the subject of our latest poll, so feel free to go cast your vote either below or on our front page.
Our previous poll was about the most exciting games coming out this year. Fallout 3 got the most votes there (22%), while Far Cry 2 came in as a distant second with only 14%. Duke Nukem Forever was the third-most-popular option (unless you count "Other"), showing that even the TR community harbors hopeful Duke fans. Among the remainder, Grand Theft Auto IV, Call of Duty: World at War, Left 4 Dead, and Crysis Warhead were almost neck-to-neck with 8-9%, while Mirror's Edge and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky received just 4% and 3% of the vote, respectively.
