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.
