Dude, I'm Waiting for My Dell / Companies / IT - Netbooks lead computer growth
Despite the downturn in the economy, an unexpected surge in global consumer demand for the machines, known as “netbooks” or mini-notebooks, has turned them into one of the hottest new consumer-tech products in years.

“We expect there will be shortages before Christmas,” said Richard Doherty, an analyst at Envisioneering, a consumer technology research firm.

I can attest to that. I ordered a Dell Mini in September. Originally scheduled to ship October 10, now that date's been pushed to mid November.
