Netbook or Laptop?

  yabeeb 15:37 17 Nov 2008


I need a laptop and don't know where to start. Too many models and too much info i don't understand?

I have a budget up to around £500 and just need it do some work on (maybe word, excel) but mainly playing - itunes, shopping, surfing.

I'd like wireless ideally and for it to be quite quick as i'm rather impatient...

I see Netbooks get good reviews. What's the main pros/cons of these compared with full-size laptops??

Advice welcome!

It all depends if you can live with a small 7”- 12” screen on a Netbook or a 15”- 17”
