What is a notebook? - May 2nd 2010, 10:10 AM

I'm really confused. I've been looking for a laptop for uni.

But i keep seeing NOTEBOOKS and NETBOOKS.

Are these the same as a laptop?

A net book is a smaller laptop.

A notebook is the same as a normal laptop.

A netbook is usually just used for internet on the go. It has lower specs than laptops so will have lower RAM and hard drive space. Some don't even have DVD/CD drives. You can still do other things like use Microsoft word and things but it's not really good for a lot of things computers and laptops do.
