Should I get a laptop or a netbook?

by on March 23, 2010

Q: I want to buy a laptop or netbook really cheap. I don’t know the difference in the two but I’m looking for one that has memory, easy operating system, ready to use, can get internet by my home wireless connection and on the go. Do you know what I should look for and where to look?

    Netbooks are much smaller than Laptops, usually with only a 10 inch screen or smaller. They also aren’t as fast as a laptop, and are generally best for basic web browsing tasks and that’s about it. They are designed to be ultra portable.

    As far as the requirements you’ve mentioned, either of these will meet those needs. I suggest you go to a local store that sells laptops an netbooks and take a look to see what fits your needs best.
