Netbooks Prove that the Form Factor Has the Right Stuff
Netbooks from Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo and Asus demand trade-offs, tests show, but they let users do almost everything they need to do for a low cost and at a light weight.By: John Dodge When I first started testing netbooks, I thought they were not really a substitute for full notebooks. However, after four weeks of using three of them, I'm not so sure.
Netbooks let me do everything I need to do-e-mail, Twitter, word processing, Web surfing and blogging/content management. And I've adapted to the smaller keyboards. In short, the trade-offs I have had to make are worth the weight, size and price benefits that netbooks offer.
