  • Which netbook should I buy??

    I'm thinking to buy a new netbook for me but I cannot decide :/
    There are lots of options on the market and they have roughly same features. A 11'' screen, 1GB Ram netbook is enough for me.
    Any suggestions?

    Well any of the Asus EeePC series are quite cheap and fit your requirements. I would get at least a 1.3 ghz Atom processor in addition to 1 gb ram.
    Take a look at newegg.com for tons of netbooks at the lowest prices around.

      Hi RichardLeik,

      Asus Eees are really cute and were one of my options. By the way has the newegg international shipment service to Turkey

      How about LG?

        I think most of the common brand name netbooks are fairly comparible, though I haven't researched this extensively. If there isn't one or two specific machines that pique your interest, the decision boils down to which brand you trust the most.

          I think the EeePC look a bit better, and from my finds are around $20 cheaper for around the same specs.

              Congratulations.
              How is it working out so far? Do resource extensive applications like Photoshop and Flash run alright?
              I'm curious because I might get one myself, I'm just afraid it won't be powerful enough for image and video editing on the go. :P
              Even though I understand it's mainly for web surfing, just wondering what the limits are.

                Unfortunately, I didn't buy a netbook, yet. It's because as well as I'm sooooo lazy and Windows7 is not available for Netbooks in Turkey. There is only Peckard Bell netbook with Windows7 but I cannot trust them :/

                Either I'll wait for a while or I'll buy a netbook with WinXP and install Win7 by myself

                  How about a netbook that runs GNU/Linux? =)

                    I've got Linux-phobia
                    I had to use Linux to run protein docking and molecule modeling programs when I was in Collage. Linux reminds me those creepy days...

                      But it's just me..

                      Hey folks, what are you thinking about Linux based netbooks?

                        Hah, that sounds like it scarred you for life.

                        It's all about requirements and ideals. If you need a small computer that just works, and you don't plan on hacking it at all, why not go for a Linux-based netbook? Everything will work out of the box, you'll save money by not purchasing a license of Windows, and you'll support competition in the operating system market.

                          Brand is not always important if you are looking to save money. At times you may trust a brand but if you can get the same content in other won't you want to switch and save money?
