Netbooks seem to be everywhere lately, and some analysts expect hardware makers to ship about 35 million of them this year alone. Considering the state of the economy, that's not entirely surprising, either—decent 9" netbooks can be had for as little as ~$330, and they can fill in for full-blown laptops in many ways.
This surge in popularity all raises a number of questions. Just what kinds of people are buying netbooks, what exactly are they buying, and how are they using the systems? Are netbooks winning over enthusiasts, or do they end up in the hands of knowledgeable users' parents, spouses, and children?
We've concocted a little survey in order to answer those questions (and a few others that were piquing our curiosity). We've done our best to word our questions sensibly and include a good cross-section of choices, but feel free to post comments below if you have more to say. Oh, and since this is a multiple-question survey, you won't find it on our front page—just scroll down to get started.
