Oct. 18, 2009 - PRLog -- In the last year or so, mobile computing has grown by leaps and bounds with the innovation of the small, lightweight and inexpensive Netbook. This ultra-portable computer is a more efficient, streamlined version of its traditional laptop counterpart.

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.

As small as a Netbook is, many people have raised the keyboard issue:  Is it cramped and does it slow down your typing? Many new models feature larger keyboards that are 95% the size of a standard laptops’, allowing you to breeze through your ABC’s without sacrificing speed or efficiency.

So, let’s review:

   *Great for people on the go
   *Small and lightweight
   *Energy efficient
   *Extremely customizable
   *Plenty of storage space for basic computing needs
   *Bluetooth and wireless internet access
