Question for those who have/had a netbook

Why did you decide on a net book instead of a regular, full sized laptop?

  • I really don't do anything on a regular laptop so all I needed was something very basic. Type up my papers, get on the internet and thats about it.

  • For me it was cheap at the time when my laptop took a shit and I needed to have internet access. Used it till I saved up for a nice laptop.

  • I already have a laptop but I hated carrying it around everywhere. I bought the netbook for an "outing" computer. I bring it to the park, doctors offices, and to school. I never use it at home...I never use my laptop at home either. My laptop hasn't been turned on in over a year. I only use my desktop at home.

  • I agree with dubwife. Also it was cheaper & more compact. Worked great for me until it was destroyed yesterday.

  • $ - plain and simple.  We bought 2 refurbed HP netbooks from a site that specializes in stuff like that (can't remember which one ATM) and spent $200 each on them.  I'd like them to have more RAM, but whatcha gonna do for the price, right?  The short screen can be a hassle with certain sites and programs though.
