A netbook is often bought by people. But what is the difference with a netbook or a laptop and a desktop PC?
A netbook is a small version of the laptop. So you really a laptop in book format. Hence the name. You put it very handy in your backpack or in your briefcase, without having a separate case for need as with the laptop.
Another advantage is that a netbook does not cost as much as a laptop. They are significantly less expensive. They cost in 2011 between 200 and 500 euros. The cheaper, the less powerful the netbook.
A netbook may be small, but has some USB ports, but also an integrated microphone and even webcam. Of course they also have speakers.
The battery of a netbook which is often longer that of a laptop. A netbook is really built to work on the road, while a laptop is often often used at home.
We get right to the next disadvantage of a netbook performance are significantly less than with a laptop. Software will be included where there is good to work with, but this is always less than a laptop. If one wants more, one will have to install it, but often this does not benefit because a netbook may work slower.
The operating system on a netbook you can not always before him. It works best Linux on a netbook. Other operating systems can, but starting then takes much longer. The disadvantage of Linux is that it does have fewer opportunities than for example with Windows 7.
