Abstract

This study aims to empirically test users' intentions to purchase a netbook as a second laptop by considering product attributes of innovative information technology (IT), individual perceptions about a new IT, personal innovativeness, and perceived enjoyment. Data was collected from two distinct groups; 272 respondents from university students and 319 practitioners from various industries. The empirical tests highlighted some implications for the distinct sample groups, which have different demands and perceptions of a netbook. These differences may be associated with the different social demography, usage environments, and perceptions of a new IT product. Nevertheless, the attributes of convenience, ease of use, affordability, portability, enjoyable innovative technology, and compact design are effective strategies of PC marketers for promoting users' intentions to purchase a netbook as a complement to their laptop computer, but not as a replacement.
