What’s The Difference between a Laptop and Notebook Computer?
they're the same. two words for the same thing. netbook, however is a very small version of the laptop/notebook.
I have a Netbook and I love it. It gives me portability but is much smaller than a regular laptop. It's not for working on all day but a good addition if you have a PC as your main computer and just need something for meetings outside the office. The big difference is that it's got to CD or DVD drive. You can get around this but networking it to your main PC or using a USB device with your CD or DVD files on it.
As TypingTornado says, they are the same thing. I'm pretty sure they changed the word Laptop to Notebook as they now warn against sitting portable computers on your lap due to the large amount of heat generated. There have been cases where serious burn injuries were caused by laptops (oops, sorry Notebook).

Notebook and laptop are basically the same thing. Many prefer to call it laptop and many call it a notebook. However a "netbook" is a smaller version of a notebook without some features of a notebook like a dvd drive.
Freda Raffeal is right the only difference is the size
