Netbooks are mini-laptops, a perfect compact, low-power and low-cost companion but, with most sporting similar hardware, it’s tough to tell the winners from the losers just by reading their specs. These are my top five netbooks.

Toshiba has the reputation as the most environmentally friendly netbooks. Toshiba mini is designed with an overized touchpad and touchpad buttons, metal keyboard and textured lid. The mini NB305 is even better than it's predecessor, sporting a sleeker chassis, louder speakers, and Intel's latest Atom N450 processor.It has a battery life of 8.5 hrs. The NB305 comes in blue, brown, or white.

Amazon also has a reversible ultra shock water resistance Neoprene Laptop notebook Sleeves. You can get `them for various laptop sizes as well as in different colours, black, pink, red, brown, white.....

3. Aser

3. Acer Aspire One 532h

Acer's maintained a steady lead in the race to sell as many netbooks as possible in the past year. That's largely because the Taiwanese manufacturer figured out early that basic netbooks at lower prices would fly off shelves. One of the interesting feature is the multicolored, metallic-like blue and black lid, which reminds us of those old school hypercolor stickers that would change color with heat. It'd be pretty cool if the lid could do that, but the only thing that changes here is the amount of smudgy fingerprints that start to overtake it.

Instead of a traditional keyboard as on its older netbooks, the 532h has Acer’s FineTip keyboard, which is completely flat on top, and has a slight space between each key. Also, it’s larger than when compared to older netbooks.

Some of the key features of this model are

  • Sleek two-tone design
  • Long battery life
  • Relatively large, textured touchpad
  • Above-average audio quality

Product specifications

CPU: 1.66-GHz Intel Atom N450
Operating System: Windows 7 Starter Edition
RAM/Expandable to: 1GB/2GB
Hard Drive Size/Speed: 250GB/5,400 rpm
Display/Resolution: 10.1 inches/1024 x 600

Price range : starting from $349

If you like Acer netbook than other laptops check Amazon for best prices. You can get Acer with battery life from 8 to 10 hrs. Amazon has a wide variety of options to choose from. Click on the Amazon links on the right and explore the differnt Acer notebooks Amazon has in offer.

4. HP Mini

4. HP Mini 311 (Windows 7)

HP Mini is a 11.6-inch netbook ($199 through Verizon Wireless with a two-year contract and $100 online discount, but regularly priced at $399) not only has a bigger screen than other subsidized models, but it features Nvidia Ion graphics, providing plenty of muscle for Windows 7 Premium.

HP Mini has RAM of DDR3/1333 and it’s soldered to the mainboard­, leaving a SODIMM slot free for an additional 2GB of RAM. The screen has a maximum resolution of 1366x768, significantly better than the standard 1024x600—for one thing, websites and programs built for 1024x768 won’t break. And thanks to the Ion platform, the Mini 311 can display 720p HD video, and output 1080p over the HDMI port.
The Mini 311’s shell is slim and attractive, with a white or black patterned lid and a silver-and-black chassis. The screen is bright and not overly reflective.

Some of the key features of this model are

  • Very good graphics performance
  • Built-in mobile broadband

  • Comfortable keyboard
  • Loud speakers

5. Dell

5.Dell Mini 10 (1012)
The netbook's build quality is excellent -- it feels remarkably robust for such a small device. On the standard model, the lid is glossy black, while the wrist rest has a textured matte finish. You can add a colourful custom design to the lid for an additional $30. Its battery life is good too. It lasted for nearly 5 hours in our intensive battery test, so you should get over 9 hours under normal usage conditions.
Dell mini has 10-inch and 1,366x768-pixel LCD screen . It's very bright and clear, with the result that photos look particularly stunning. The keyboard is surprisingly large too.

In this article I have included 5 best laptops ranked by some of the laptop reviewers. You can get all the laptops at an affortable price from Amazon. If you also want some laptop accessories like laptop bags, mouse headphones or webcam check on the Amazon links in the right and in the bottom.

      Thank you. If price were not a consideration and if traveling a great deal and if what I want to carry with me is almost like a desktop, fast, internet accessible even in Timbuktu, what would you recommend?
