While Notebook has a lot more duty and more suitable for those who create the content, such as editing video and images.

2. The Size
Netbook has a monitor limited size. The monitor size is just 7 to 10 inch. If bigger than 10 inch, it's not Netbook anymore. While Notebook Monitor size is 10 to 17 inch.     
The availability of input and output in the netbook is also more limited. With the tiny and practical size, this device has no optical disk drives and only rely on the USB slot. The reason is because the netbook intentionally made as compact as it may be taken to facilitate the users. This is in line with the usage more inclined to content consumption.

Another difference is in term of the processor. Netbook use Intel Atom processor mostly that consume less power than the processor for the Notebook, of course, with the consequences of the lower process speed, but still comfortable enough to do office work and internet. With the lower process speed and the tiny monitor size, the batery power will stand longer.

      The price of one netbook in 2008 (I have ASUS model) was P22 thousand pesos or $500 dollars more or less. I just recently pawned it to give way to my desktop upgrade that I'm using right now. Thanks for this hub. febriedethan.
