On these pages you will find some of the best netbooks for sale from various different companies. Netbooks are a category of small light-weight more affordable laptop computers. They were launched in late 2007 as more compact laptops designed to be low in weight and cost. They often have some components missing such as optical drives and feature smaller sized screens and keyboards and have significantly less computing power compared with full-size laptops.
 
They have ranged in size from 5 to 12 inches and generally weigh around 1 kg. It is becoming increasingly hard to distinguish between budget laptops and netbooks with them having comparable specifications. Netbooks do however tend to be smaller and not quite as powerful with most featuring Windows 7 starter operating system that is lower in price and specially designed for lower spec computers.
 
Asus were the first company to introduce cheap netbooks for sale with their Asus Eee PC. It was initially designed for the emerging marketplaces weighing 0.9 kilograms with a screen size of 7 inches, and a keyboard that was 85% the size of a normal keyboard. When they sold in excess of 300,000 units in four months other companies such as Dell and Acer took notice and began developing their own cheap netbooks.
 
Most netbooks for sale ordinarily leave out optical drives and have solid state storage instead of a conventional hard drive. This is because they require less power, are quicker, lighter and more shock resistant. They do have less storage capacity though compared with mechanical hard drives that are found in most typical laptops. Most Samsung netbooks, Acer netbooks and others tend to use the Intel atom processor as there are low powered and specifically designed for netbooks.
 
Netbooks tend to be most popular with the business traveller because of their portability and perfect size between smart phones and laptops, thus seem to be increasingly preferred to normal laptops.
