11.6 inch screen
Netbooks Currently Listed at or below $250
The philosophy of a traditional netbook is net access for a fairly inexpensive price (generally below $400 or less) at the expense of hardware such as Blu-ray drive or kickass graphics card or even smaller displays . On the other hand, you may find older notebooks selling at much lower price compared to when they were new and they make a pretty good netbook with “additional hardware” for the price. That is because these were not intended to be just netbooks when initially offered.

Still, it helps to establish some workable standards when it comes to buying a netbook. I believe that netbooks should be used for actual work, such as writing articles, minor graphics work, spreadsheet calculation, etc, although work was not the original intention behind the product. The bigger the screen, the better for your productivity. Two sizes seem to dominate the scene. Although netbooks with 10.1? screens are sufficient and plenty are available for less than $250, I opted for a netbook with 11.6? screen, the Acer Aspire One AO722. Screens smaller than these two sizes are for web surfing, Facebook, and gaming. You might as well get an iPad or use your iPhone for those type of activities.
