Notebook Computer, Laptop Computer & Netbook Computer
Notebook Computer, Laptop Computer & Netbook Computer Overview
The notebook or laptop computer is a great all around computer because it matches the processing power of many full sized desktops with the portability that is associated with the netbook class. These computers offer plenty of storage for all of your media as well as the processing power that you need to play games, work in any program while the computer stays quick and responsive. With great brand names like Acer, Fujitsu, Lenovo, HP and Asus, you will find a top quality machine for whatever your needs are here. You still need to select your specific notebook based on what kind of uses you have for it. You should look at the processing power and storage capabilities of the notebook but you should also look at the battery life of them as well. Since these are meant to be used both on the road and near a power source the battery life needed can vary widely by notebook and by the user's requirements. A battery life of 2-5 hours isn't uncommon among these notebooks but you if you use the notebook for higher powered processing then you can see the battery life fall to under an hour in many cases.
The netbook computer is a smaller version of a notebook or laptop computer that is made for use on the move. This breed usually comes with a smaller screen and a bigger battery than most laptops and is often used professionals on the go. It is a favorite of road warriors because they can use them for hours without having to plug in and still have all the functionality of a full sized computer. The tradeoff with them is usually either performance or price. The ones that really have great specs will cost a bit more but will still be able to do anything their full sized brethren can do. The less expensive ones are still great machines but they will often lack the truly huge performance or storage specifications of a full sized laptop, desktop or all in one PC. These netbooks are generally the best in terms of battery life that you can get with an on the road computer that has all the functionality of a full computer while still letting you work 6-8 hours without being plugged in to the wall.
