The screen is really bright and crisp. Beats out my laptops 15.4" screen for clarity!

Netbooks can be expensive and the ones reviewed above are excellent value for money. If you have your eye on a more expensive 10.1 inch netbook there are a few ways you can save money.

If shopping online add the product you like to your wishlist and check its price on a regular basis. Keep your eye out for advertised promotions.

Exchange for your old laptop. If you already own a laptop and you are buying a netbook in place of this you should consider doing an exchange. If your laptop is in good condition you may get a hundred dollars back and you can put this to the price of a netbook.

Look out for coupons for netbook retailers and Amazon.
