Netbook or laptop?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I don't even know what is the difference, but I am looking for something for school, here is what I am looking for:

Lightweight : don't want to carry something too heavy
Fast: but not for gaming, I want to boot quick into windows, Maybe something with ssd? 4gb ram? I dint want it taking 20 seconds loading a ms word doc.
Durable: just something that the buttons won't fall off.

I will use it for many surfing the net, writing my papers. Using cramaster. I will use it a lot so battery longitivtiy would be a plus.

Where can get something like this. I don't know how much it cost so throw something at me that is not too expensive.

Thanks

Price range? You could look into the Acer TimelineX series.

For School I would definitely say Laptop. Netbooks are nice for web browsing but that's about it. Also, a lot of Netbooks have smaller keys so they become a hassle to type on.

Difference between netbook and notebook is that a netbbok is a smaller, less powerful notebook with longer battery life. It's intended to be used for surfing the net (thus the name) and other non-cpu/gpu intensive activities.

I have the Asus eee which I take to class and it has served me very well so far (had it for 3 years now), even dropped it twice on to concrete and still runs perfect lol, so it's very durable and battery life is excellent!
I upgraded the ram to 2GB (best decision), but didn't see the use of an SSD as the CPU is by far the biggest bottleneck.

If you want something just to take to school, then a netbook is perfect and I would strongly recommend the eee.

You can get them at any computer/electronics shop and they're not expensive.

i agree with hirolla888, and beside these, i'd say netbook is cheaper than laptop usually.
