Yes, with Intel's new integrated processing solutions, netbooks can get this thin. Today at Computex, Intel launched the mobile dual core "Pine Trail" platform, optimised for low power consumption and higher performance in thinner and sleeker netbooks. 'Pine Trail' is a two chip Atom-based solution: one chip houses the processor and the GPU on the same die, and the other chip houses the I/O hub chip. The architecture increase the power efficiency and battery life, while giving a performance boost over the current netbooks. However, it would be interesting to see how the integrated graphics compares with a dedicated solution like the NVIDIA Ion 2.
