The idea behind a traditional netbook is web-based surfing for a rather bargain price (commonly within $500 or considerably less) at the expense of hardware such as DVD drive or latest graphics card or even smaller monitors. That being said, you may find older computers being offered at much reduced price when compared with when they were first hitting the market and they make a good quality netbook with “alot more hardware” for the price. That’s because these were not intended to be simply just netbooks when to begin with.

Nowadays, netbooks have been around for several years and they are faster at a cheap price. My best suggestion is to shoot for the $300 netbooks or under. They give the best bang for the buck. And because they’re cheap, anybody can afford a netbook.

Top 3 things you should consider when buying a netbook are:

  1. Windows 7. Face it, Windows is the most popular OS out there and Win 7 is the latest incarnation. Windows XP, though an excellent product, will not be supported after a certain year, 2014, I believe. And Vista just plain sucks. If you’re a typical consumer, i.e. not technical, you’ll have questions about your PC somewhere down the line. And since many people uses Windows, you’ll have a better chance of getting answers, not necessarily by Microsoft or any professional customer service, but your classmate, co-worker, or the person next to you at Starbucks. The probability of getting help goes down if you’re using a different OS like Linux or, at this time, Android.
  2. 10.1 or 11.6 inch screen with 1366×768 or higher resolution. I believe that netbooks are 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. Netbooks with 10.1″ screens are sufficient and plenty are available for less than $300. But I opted for a netbook with 11.6″ screen, the Acer AO722. Small screens are for web surfing, Facebook, and gaming. Might as well get an iPad or a tablet. Or use your iPhone.
  3. Dual-core or better processors. If you’re using your netbook for work, then there’s a good chance that you’ll be multi-tasking. In my experience from my prior netbook, low-end single processors are simply not enough to support several programs at the same time. My new netbook, an Acer AO722 is dual core and lets me stream or play video without a drop in performance.
