I think Netbooks are no longer in production, in general, since they did
not sell as well as they manufacturers had hoped.

You said that you don't want an apple device, but I really love my Macbook
Air.  I use it for everything now when I am not using my Linux desktop
machine.  I had planned to use the Chromebook since it's light weight and
cheap, but once my work gave me a macbook, I haven't looked back!
