Netbooks are best suited for Web surfing, documentation and basic multimedia functions, and the best netbooks are designed to be easily portable as well as economical.

Netbooks generally come with screen sizes between 9 and 12 inches and are typically less than 3 lb in weight, integrated with small keyboards. They also have much lower power consumption and benefit travellers with their long battery life of 8 hour or higher together with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth amenities.

In terms of efficiency, netbooks do not have performance levels to match laptops or even ultraportable laptops, typically running on single core processors like Intel Atom or Via. However it is necessary that you have at least 2 GB RAM and 120 GB HDD storage capacity for even the basic applications to run freely.

The best netbooks are low priced and even include a good operating system like Windows Starter at less than $500.
