Approaching Netbook

According to the well known free encyclopedia-Wikipedia, netbooks (also called mini notebooks or subnotebooks) are a rapidly evolving category of small, light and inexpensive laptop computers suited for general computing and accessing web-based applications; they are often marketed as "companion devices," that is, to augment a user's other computer access.
Walt Mossberg-an American journalist who is the principal technology columnist for the Wall Street Journal called netbook a "relatively new category of small, light, minimalist and cheap laptops." By August 2009, CNET called netbooks "nothing more than smaller, cheaper notebooks."
As far as I know, the term Netbook was first used by the Canadian ATIC Company in June 1996. At that time, it is sold as "available online" notebook in the North American market. Later, the trademark was sold to a notebook company of US-Canada (Toronto, California) as a trademark of notebooks to use until now. The emphasis was put on multi-functional, direct Internet accessible as well as portable Network-linkable notebook.
Designed especially for wireless communication and internet surfing, this kind of mini notebook with competitively lower weight and lower cost has been enjoying a good market volume. Thought there is extremely distinct difference between notebook and netbook, I do believe tens of thousands of people will undoubtedly deeply attracted by this smart and brilliant gadget. Indeed, netbook-the mini notebook will widen the personal computer market around the whole world.
Due to its promising potential larger market demanding, nearly all the famous companies have launched their own brands. The pioneering ones on the present market are the following ones:

Of course, every coin has two sides. The mini notebook-netbook is no exception. Its outstanding advantages contribute to its popularity among common use. Firstly, its high integration and little heat generating features make it a lower-failure-rate gadget. Secondly, netbook is a lower power-consumption mini notebook, which contributes to its long life span. Thirdly, the stylish and elegant design caters to the tendency towards fashion not to mention its easy-to-carry function which allows people to take it wherever and whenever with ease. The last factor is of course the unbeaten price. At present, the lowest one belongs to the Arthur Wood’s $293, and the international prices of brand Lenovo is $588 while HP enjoys the highest price of $661. The trend is to be more lower-priced and greater functioned.
Of course, netbooks’ disadvantages also cause it to be hard-to-accepted by the professional for its PC professional office performance cannot be compared with a real notebook. Use it to design something is nearly am impossible tough. Moreover, to the game fans, its weaker 3 D gaming performance makes it hard to be appreciated.
On the whole, your choice depends on your needs and budget. If you only use it to surf the Internet, chat, play stocks, watch TV and movies, play simply games as well as use some office software, a smart netbook is your ideal top choice. While if you want to play more advanced and complicate 3D games or use one to do 3D modeling, it is better for you to purchase a laptop or desktop.
