I’m a fan of the Netbooks, and if you haven’t realized by a few posts that I’ve written, they are a great tool to have that not only save you money, but do a lot of things that you typical desktop, and laptop do. If you’re unsure of what a Netbook is, be sure to refer to my post Laptops vs. Netbooks.
Now, that we’re about to start school, some of you students may find that you’ll need a Netbook for this upcoming school year. So, which ones do I recommend? Here’s my list…
Asus Eee PC 1000HE 10.1 Inch Netbook: As one of the highest rated Netbooks on the web today, this very reasonably priced computer features a lot of specs that you can use. This Asus comes with XP preloaded, a 1.66 GHZ processor, 6 cell battery that lasts up to almost 10 hours, and a built in 802.11n Wi-Fi. If that’s not enough, they will even throw in a 1 year warranty.
Acer Aspire One AOD150: If you’re looking for a great computer for less than $300, this Acer is one that you should heavily consider. This Acer model comes with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 6 cell battery, giving you up to 6 1/2 hours of battery life. If that’s not enough, it comes loaded with Windows XP, a 160GB hard drive, as well as 1GB of RAM.
Samsung NC10-14GB: Yes, Samsung creates Netbooks, and they create some very nice ones. With it’s 10.2″ wide screen and 160GB Hard Drive, this particular Samsung model can be yours for less than $350. If that’s not enough for you, you’ll also get a 6 cell lithium ion battery, and a Netbook that weighs less than 2.8 pounds!
Toshiba Mini NB205-N210: The last Netbook on my list is the Toshiba Mini. This Toshiba model comes with a 10.1″ screen, 1GB RAM, a 160GB hard drive, as well a Windows XP.
