Netbooks are perfect travel companions and meet basic computing needs, including e-mailing, Web surfing, and simple document creation. Best of all, these low-powered machines cost less than the standard-issue laptop
Netbooks are a compromise in nearly every way. Their screens are tiny and their keyboards are cramped. Two megabytes of memory is all you can expect, and their Intel Atom and AMD Fusion CPUs don't come close to the "real" processors in full-fledged laptops. But of course netbooks are lighter than laptops, they're less bulky, and they cost a whole lot less (typically between $300 and $400). Most important of all, unlike an Apple iPad or an Android tablet, they run Windows. In short, they can do everything a laptop can do, albeit more slowly.
