Netbook Reviews

Ok you might want a Netbook.  So what is a Netbook anyway?  It is a tiny, light weight, low power consumption notebook.  Oh, by the way did I mention that Netbooks are cheap too.  They are primary designed for people who want a small tiny notebook that is optimised for wireless communication that can access the Internet.  A small laptop designed just for Internet browsing and emailing.

They come fully functional with your choice of operating systems, Windows XP or Linux.  Most come in sizes between 7 to 11 inches, weighing less than 3 pounds.  Windows Vista is not seen on them due to the OS being too resource intensive for these tiny Netbooks. 

Cool Tip: Netbooks craze all started in 2007 by Asus when they released to the public a tiny laptop called ASUS Eee PC. It weighed in at around 2 pounds with a 7 inch screen.  Something most people could hold in the palm of their hand, and browse the Internet with while emailing their friends.  It really began catching on during mid 2008 and has pick up steam ever since.

Here are a few of the most popular Netbooks on the market today:
