Netbooks have just recently made a huge appearance. Which are far better than laptops, or also known as Notebooks. These Notebooks have been used for quite a while already. The reason, that is, it is portable, yet, it has the capacity of a desktop computer. We do better with laptops in terms of mobility because you can carry it anywhere to either surf the net, chat, make your business presentation, or anything that your computer can do.
But now, there is this little cousin of the notebook, which is the netbook. So, let’s take a look at what they hype is all about with the Netbooks and see if it is something you would prefer over a Notebook.
Number one, these Netbooks are far smaller and lighter than the Notebooks. Number two, they are much cheaper, but still have the power and capacity of a notebook. Everything the notebook can do, the netbook can do it too. The only drawback is that they come with no DVD/CD Drives, so you cannot play any DVDs or CDs with your netbook.
However, there is a plus side to not having the CD/DVD drive. If you are a writer, a journalist, or something along those lines, you really don’t need this drive. You can store your files and other documents securely online. So, is it more practical to buy a netbook instead of a notebook? That depends on what you will be using the Netbook for. If you do not require a CD/DVD drive, then yes, you should definitely try the Netbooks. If you must have a drive, then no, your best bet is to stick with the Notebooks.
On another note, the Netbooks are great for children. Say, your child really wants a computer, a laptop, but you aren’t too keen on buying him or her something that expensive. In this case, you may want to consider a Netbook. Since they are a lot cheaper, you will not have to spend a lot of money. This is a way to test the child to see if he or she is responsible enough to own a laptop computer. Not only the cost, but if your child doesn’t need the drives, then this laptop should do the job.
So, in the end, it is completely up to you on which you would prefer; Netbook or Notebook. What you will need it for will basically determine which type of Laptop you will get.
