ProductiveTech Discusses the Growing Popularity of Netbooks
Recent innovations in mobile technology have lead to a huge boom in the netbook market.
With a battery life that can last up to 8 hours and a low price point, Netbooks have great appeal to those continually on the move. These devices are generally used for basic computing tasks like Microsoft Office, web-based applications and remotely connecting to the office for files, email, and other network services.
Weighing 2-3 pounds and sporting a 7" to 12" screen, Netbooks are extremely durable and easy to carry around. Depending on the size of your wallet, these little guys can be very customizable. At an average price of about $400-$450, you can expect a 10" model equipped with wireless networking, Bluetooth technology, 160 GB of standard hard drive space and a 1.6 GHz processor.
