> Laptop computers:
> Originally, the laptop computer were not the laptop computers at all.
> Though the idea behind them was to make a device that can fit on lap
> and is portable to carry around, but they were way too bulky to be
> used on anyone's lap.
> Those who are long been connected through technoworld will give you
> lot of such examples like Commodore SX-64 and IBM "Green Machine" etc.
> So, they were not exactly the laptops, and in fact, their prize to was
> pretty much (I still need some months of my salary with overtime to

> Notebook:
> The makers of technology don't make it for inconvenience, and they
> often want people to use and appreciate it.
> Since it wasn't much happening in the case of laptops considering it's
> yet big size and costly appearance, companies have started scratching

> Laptop computers eventually progressed to the point where they could

> "notebook computers", presumably because they opened like notebooks if
> you turned them sideways. Some people still call them laptop computers
> and they're not wrong in doing so.

> Netbook:
> And, then came the netbooks, from a perspective of confusing people
> even more. (not actually though).
>
> The netbooks are even smaller then notebook and can even fit in your
> small Tiffin bag.
> They're basically the same thing as notebook computers, scaled down

> applications.
>
> Ok, so as the time passed, the size has dwindled, but is the size only

> factor?
> Not really.

> First, have a look of a tipicle notebook and it's configuration:
>
> * Screen size : 12 Inch and up
> * Processor : Intel Pentium Dual-Core,Core 2 Duo or AMD Turion X2
> * Graphics : Integrated or External Graphic Card, from Intel GMA x3100
> to AMD Mobility HD 3870X2
> * Weight : 1.9kg and up.
>
> And, now a quick compare with netbook:
> * Screen size : 12 Inch max
> * Processor : VIA C7 1.2GHz, Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz or AMD Geode
800MHz
> * Graphics : Integrated Graphic Card, mostly Intel GMA 900 or 950
> * Weight : 1.1kg and below.
>
> So, there are four important points as you can see:
> Screen size: I think this we've already kind of discussed.
>
> Processor:
> This part is most important.
> The notebook uses Intel Pentium Dual-Core,Core 2 Duo or AMD Turion X2
> as processor, while the netbook uses VIA C7 1.2GHz, Intel Atom N270
> 1.6GHz or AMD Geode 800MHz.
> The processor of a netbook is much lesser then the processor of
> notebook, and would not be able to perform high speed computing,
> graphic/video editing on multiple channels, or working simultaneously
> on various applications.

> Graphics and weight:
> Notebook supports better graphic cards then netbook, therefore it is
> capable in doing high definition graphic editing, viewing of high
> definition multi channel videos and so on. Which isn't possible in
> netbooks.
> As per weight, here, the netbook wins the bettle.
> As you can see, netbooks in comparison are pretty light in weight then
> the notebooks.

> So, which is better?
>
>>From the outset it looks like netbooks don't have much features/power,
> so they aren't good to buy, but wait.

> The concept of netbook wasn't really to provide users facilities of

> on.
> It was all designed for basic users, who more prefer to do their work
> on internet rather locally.
> Oh, and as there is a saying in we IT people, "web brouzer is the new 
> laptop".
> Ah, not to worry, it can very well run all your other basic
> applications like MS word, excel, media players and others.

>
> Netbooks are more then half in prize of notebooks, and then having
> better portability.
> If you are a basic user and not required to handle very heavy

> to be the best option for you.
>
> Of course, if you're uses are higher and you need to work on hulking
