Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I will briefly explain to you what a netbook is.

A netbook is a mini laptop or personal computer. The netbooks are normally a lot smaller than standard laptops which make them much more mobile than a laptop or a PC. They normally don’t have a CD/DVD drive but have USB port where you can plug an external CD/DVD drive into the netbook.

What makes these netbooks so great is that they are very portable and easy to take with you wherever you travel. As technology advances these netbooks is becoming more and more powerful and nowadays they can perform all the functions a laptop or a PC can. They are not always as powerful as laptops or PC’s but they run your normal windows versions just like a laptop or PC. They can also be used for gaming purposes if the games are they are compliant with the hardware requirements of the games. These netbooks also mostly come with an Atom processor which is a CPU that can perform and use very little power. This enables these netbooks to have a much longer battery life than that of a laptop.

The normal hardware specifications for a netbook are as follows: CPU 1.6GHZ Atom processor 2GB Ram 160GB Hard drive Wi-Fi

Some models also have a built in 3G card that makes it easier to connect to the internet from any place that have 3G coverage which in the modern world is very large areas all over the world. A netbook can perform all tasks that a laptop can perform like connect to a network, some have Bluetooth. They are just more orientated to be portable and made with mobility in mind. This is the reason why their hardware is not always as fast as a laptop or pc but in the majority of the times more than sufficient.

The advantages are endless with a netbook as they make it easier for travel and mobility purposes and still perform very well. Most people are amazed at the power of their netbooks and are surprised of all its capabilities. The original idea behind a netbook was to make a small portable computer with a good battery life that is perfect for surfing the internet.

I have been using a netbook for almost three years now. I have no other pc because my netbook performs all the tasks that are needed and I have never been in a situation where I needed more.

I hope this article helped you to understand what is a netbook. And helped you to understand why they are such a great gadget to have and why people buy netbooks. Hopefully soon you will also get yourself one and enjoy the great benefits of these netbooks.
