LAPTOP, the leading mobile technology magazine and website, is excited to announce that it has been named as the premiere media sponsor of the upcoming Netbook Summit, taking place May 24-25 in San Francisco. In addition, LAPTOP Editor in Chief Mark Spoonauer is serving as conference chairperson and will be moderating a session titled “The Future of Netbooks.” Presented by Conference ConCepts, this groundbreaking event is dedicated to the ongoing revolution in low-cost mobile computing, with netbook sales this year expected to reach 39.7 million units. The event will also cover emerging categories like tablets and examine how they will impact both the market and end users.

The Netbook Summit will include a featured address by Larry Roberts. As one of the founders of the Internet, Roberts led the team that designed and developed ARPANET and is currently the chairman of Anagran. Keynote speeches will also be given by top executives from AMD, ASUS, Dell, and Nvidia. The event will provide attendees with practical information on understanding the role of netbooks, using netbooks effectively, providing security and backup, netbooks in education, making netbooks perform better, and selecting platforms for applications.

“No single product category has transformed the computer industry more during the last five years than the netbook,” said LAPTOP Editor in Chief Mark Spoonauer. “It has significantly raised the expectation of buyers in terms of portability, battery life, and value. This event provides a compelling and unique opportunity to not only gauge the impact of these devices but also to discuss their evolution.”
