  • Netbook - NO DVD/CD Drive, only USB Ports, Smaller, only about a 10" screen, slower processors, made basically for internet, with smaller memory.

    Laptop - DVD/CD drive, larger screen, heavier, faster processor, more memory, internet and other processes.

  • Netbook is for kids that will only be using it for school no games. So it's great for essays and looking up research. And it's way cheaper then laptops.

  • Netbooks are not always cheaper than laptops. I think netbooks are a waste of money. If it is being used for school, get the laptop. In general, just get the laptop. My nieces mom bought her a netbook and is now regretting it because she is going to have to buy a laptop for my niece because the netbook doesn't have the memory needed for all her assignments.

  • I agree with tyfry7496, if you need it for school or anything besides just surfing the 'net, go with a laptop.
