Do you have a netbook?

I would like an inexpensive one mainly for internet and email. I want one small enough that I can take to the park with the kids, or the beach , preferably with a long battery life as we tend to stay all day sometimes. We may watch a few movies but it is not necessary to have . What do you guys recommend, and how much should I plan on spending for a decent one ?

  • They are small and will work well for internet and email (assuming that you can get a wireless signal or have a Verizon hotspot or something).

    Mine does not have a DVD player and that is a bummer. Do you have an iphone?

  • as the PP mentioned there isn't a cd drive but you can get ones that plug in with a USB cord. My netbook cost me less than $300 and it does everything I need it to.

  • My LP has one, and he loves it, but as the PP stated there isn't a way to put a CD in.

  • I've seen them at Walmart for 198. I almost got one, but I'm glad I got a regular laptop instead. I like the functionality of a regular laptop vs. a netbook.

  • No, laptop and wouldn't downgrade for a netbook.
