Top Netbooks

What are laptops for? Certainly, the reason is portability. Carrying your Personal Computing device everywhere with you is a heavenly feeling. Laptops or notebooks have completely changed the concept of computer work, now you can keep doing your tasks even in trains, cafes, airports and your back yard. Few years back, a smaller kind of laptops has been introduced in the market called “Netbook”. A netbook is smaller in size than a regular sized laptop, lighter in weight and easy to carry almost everywhere.

Today, I have compiled an article for you about the best five netbooks available these days.

1. HP Mini 311:

This netbook is being liked a lot by majority of the critics. It is equipped with Intel Atom processor N270 running on 1.6 GHz, having 1GB 1066MHz DDR2 RAM, 160 GB HDD, NVidia Ion Graphics, NVidia MCP 79 chipset and running on Windows XP OS. The little screen is not very little in fact being 11.6 inches. Mini 311 does not weigh much with 3.3 pounds. The overall look is by no means awesome; it is a normal looking netbook but strong to hold and use. With 1336×768 native resolution, the display is a big hit. HDMI port makes it stand out among rival netbooks. Wi-Fi, card readers, Bluetooth and stereo speakers are there like any other netbook.

Keys are very nicely spaced which will make typing an easy task. 3G connectivity, HDMI port, SD and SIM card reader, webcam and A-GPS add value to this already wonderful netbook.
