Great computing starts with Intel inside.
Netbooks haven’t progressed that much in terms of raw power, but this one’s battery life and great keyboard are still impressive.
If you need a netbook with more graphics rendering grunt than what’s normal, the 1015BX is a pretty well-priced option.
This AMD Fusion powered netbook is an incremental update compared to its predecessor, and while the specs are good it could still benefit from discounting.
The Eee PC X101CH is really light, but by using a 3-Cell battery it isn’t expected to get a decent battery life.
This netbook uses one of the faster new Intel Atom processors, but the small battery and mediocre keyboard undermine it.
It’s older than other netbooks currently being sold, which means that you don’t get a HDMI port. It is otherwise decent though.
It still has a decently large HDD and a 6-Cell battery, but newer alternatives can be found for the same or less.
Although it’s not the latest in the netbook world, the generally decent specs including a large hard disk drive still make it fair value.
This older netbook is no longer as great a buy as it used to be, but the specs are at least reasonably well-rounded.
HP’s netbook continues to get higher specs for a lower price, and from our experience it’s sure to get a significant discount at retail.
