The in-betweeners: 11.6-inch laptops and Premium Netbooks (photos)

Bigger than a standard 10-inch Netbook, but still less powerful and less expensive than even budget-minded midsize systems, these 11.6-inch laptops sit somewhat awkwardly between categories. Some call them premium Netbooks, others say they're ultraportable systems. We say they're a worthwhile step up when a single-core 10-inch Atom Netbook just isn't enough. (As a bonus, we've tossed in a couple of similar 12-inch versions at the end.)
