I have no idea what you even mean by that. Totally non-sequitur.
It's harder to crack a small plywood board than it is to crack a large
plywood board. Likewise, an ultra-thin 10" netbook should be less prone
to cracking than an ultra-thin 15" notebook.
That's just my theory, though.
Most netbooks (at least the ones I have seen) are relatively flimsy.
They are not "almost-handheld". They are much larger than that.
I was listing advantages of netbooks over notebooks and laptops, but
size is not one of them, _at_least_for_me_. They are too small. The
screens are too small for my eyesight, the keyboards are too small for
my hands, and so on.
YMMV, I suppose.
