Netbooks offer your PC in an easy to use and transport mini edition. For me an Asus netbook was a perfect choice and here is why.
My Asus Eee PC Netbook
Why buy a netbook?
The age of technology has snowballed almost out of control. Our first home PC bought in 1997 would now seem cumbersome, slow and costly. As the technology has developed prices have dropped and equipment become faster and smaller So often that is the case as products improve.
These days there are Ipads, Androids, Laptops, Pcs, and more. For me a netbook seemed as if it would fit my requirements and it did

Choosing the brand
For once I decided to research the options available. Ins ome ways that did not help. There is always so much choice it can be hard making your final selection. However I opted for a netbook from the Asus range as that particular brand had good reviiews and many recommendations.
It is a good idea when purchasing something such as a netbook to consider your requirements.
- What are you hoping to gain
- Why have you chosen this product
- What is your minimum specification
- If price is a consideraton, what is the minimum and maximum cost
For me I did not want to pay the earth. I wanted a small piece of equipment that would be truly portable. The netbook had to be small enough to carry easily if travelling abroad, for example. I did not need mountains of software as it was to be used basically for writing online, emails and accessing the Internet. One essential was that I wanted the most recent version of Windows installed.

Apart from memory you may want or need to buy extras. A netbook has no DVD or CD drive but you can purchase one separately.
These days though so much can be downloaded it is not essential. You may also want to use an external hard drive for back ups.
This would save space on the netbook and ensure you do not lose important files, should the worst happen.
For me the nebook is an addition to our main PC. As such it has distinct uses which means all the extras are not necessary. Your needs could be very different.
For instance you may want to purchase a mouse.
One satisfied customer
Six months after purchase I am one satisfied customer. I paid a little under £200 for my Asus netbook and that included a charge for a carrying case. Fair enough the case I bought is only a basic black one but it does the job.
The one thing I do wish I had bought with the netbook was more memory. It was available at purchase for a little more money. However at the time money was a prime consideration. I am still able to upgrade easily but perhaps it is something you would prefer to do when you buy the product.
The touchpad is less sensitive than our old laptop and works well. The screen is only 10.1 but that to suits my needs well. You may want to choose a slightly larger screen.
Am easy to access and use webcam is provided, built in that is.
All in all no complaints at all.
If you decide a Netbook would be the perfect gift for you or a loved one there are some great deals online right now. If you also purchase via a cashback site such as Topcashback you could save even more money.
A netbook will fit easily into your Christmas stocking.
