Netbook Selection Help Please?

  Big L 266 13:44 24 Feb 2011


I would like to ask advice as to what netbook and netbook specs I should consider when buying please.Its sole use will be around the home and linked to my desktop - Dell Studio 540 - running Vista Home Premium 32 bit.Its primary use will be to link the two via software wirelessly via my D-Link router DSL2740R which has three aerials at the back.I hope to be able to sit in a more comfortable chair and use my netbook to remote-link to my desktop.

The size of hard-drive isn't important.The operating system should be Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit as per desktop.It should have a range of around 30 feet and a very long battery life.Cheap but efficient is the remit I've set myself.

If you use a netbook,what would you recommend and why please?I have toyed with a Dell Inspirion priced at £229 for the job.

Thank you very much for your very kind help and hope you'll be able to help me choose

Go for a Samsung, I have one and they are brilliant.

What will you be using it for?

Don't limit yourself to Vista. W7 may be much better.

Have you considered a tablet?
