Another reminder that netbooks are truly mainstream consumer products now. From USA Today…

Disney, Asus team up on netbook

The Eee PC netbook is scheduled to be available sometime next month and targets 6 to 12 year old children. It is available in Princess Pink (see photo above) and Magic Blue with a Mickey Mouse theme. Disney provides apps for Windows XP to stream Radio Disney programming, customize the desktop with Disney themes and Disney-fied utilities such as a calculator and stopwatch. The Netpal has a 8.9 inch LCD display (Asus Eee PC 900 series) and will cost around $350.

Here’s my prediction: A lot of adults are going to buy these Netpals for themselves 🙂
