11.6 inch screen
Notebooks below $300
The thought behind a traditional netbook is net browsing for a really bargain price (usually within $400 or less) at the expense of top-notch components such as an optical drive or gaming-capable graphics card or simply smaller screens. With that said, you should find older computers being offered at much cheaper price in comparison with when they were initially retailing and they make a good netbook with “alot more hardware” for the price. That’s because these were not supposed to be simply just netbooks when first 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 $300, I opted for a netbook with 11.6″ screen, the Acer Aspire One AO722. Small screens are for web surfing, Facebook, and gaming. Might as well get an iPad or an Android tablet. Or use your iPhone.
