Netbooks were invented in 2007 as alernatives to laptops. Netbooks are perfect for someone who is always on the go and allow people to work while they travel or even while they wait for dinner at a restaurant. Netbooks are much more affordable and lightweight, meaning they are easier to carry around. They do have smaller amounts of memory, so are not useful for someone who needs alot of hard drive stroage space; memory is estimated at 128GB at best. They come with a variety of screen sizes with 10.1 inch being the average; not too big but still big enough to see the screen clearly.

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

Look out for sales. Local electronic shop and Amazon frequently have promotions and offers on a range of 10.1 inch netbooks, which may make them a little bit more affordable. 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.
