Netbooks vs Tablets


Small laptops and netbooks offer many features that the average notebook or tablet doesn’t. Despite the boom of the tablets like the iPad, netbooks possess capabilities which just aren’t available on the Apple or Android tablets. Below we have put together some reasons to still opt for a netbook over a tablet or a larger notebook laptop.

Size
Netbooks offer so much more portability over conventional notebooks. With a screen size of approximately 10 inches, the netbook is more than 5 inches smaller than the average laptop. This makes them lighter and much easier to carry. The portability means that they can be taken with you anywhere.

Portability
Many people state that tablets are more portable than a netbook as they are even lighter and easier to carry. While this is true, many people now carry various accessories with their tablets such as external keyboards and speakers. The netbook offers all of these in one device.

Typing
When comparing with a tablet pc, netbooks provide you with the ability to type documents and carry out word processing tasks quickly and effectively. Tablets don’t have the luxury of a keyboard and typing on a touchscreen can often be difficult. Spreadsheets and presentations require a PC rather than a touchscreen, perfect for students and netbooksprofessionals alike.

Higher resolution displays
Netbooks are able to reach 1366 x768 resolutions as opoosed to the 1024 x 768 resolution on most tablets.

Superior battery life

The battery life on the majority of netbooks matches or exceeds the life of large netbooks, this is because of their low power consumption. Many netbooks can easily provide a battery life which exceeds 8 hours. The battery life of most tablet PCs are much less than netbooks and with a netbook you can easily carry a spare battery thus providing twice the life.

Full flash support
Apple products don’t offer flash support so you are unable to watch flash video on the iPads. Android tablets do offer this capability however. This is not a problem that netbook owners face as all are compatible with flash video.

Multitasking
One of the main advantages of netbooks over tablets is their superior processor which means that they can perform multiple tasks at the same time and run a number of applications at once. Although tablets are able to run more than one piece of software at a time they often hang when a few applications are running simultaneously

Ports
All small laptops come with Ethernet port, multiple USB ports, and even HDMi ports allowing you to easily connect to a television or monitor.

Expansion
Netbooks can always be beefed up too and memory or hard drive space can be easily increased to improve capacity or performance. With the iPad and Android tablets, expansion capabilities are extremely limited and in most cases can’t be altered.

Price
The biggest advantage that the netbook has over its tablet and notebook competitors is price. With significantly cheaper prices and superior performance over tablets, the netbook only gets beaten by the tablet’s appeal as a fashion accessory. In tougher economic times, the reasons to go for a netbook over a tablet prove that overall the small laptop is a better buy.

REVIEW
Advanced technology has resulted in the emergence of a new set of computing devices; this set consists of various tablets and slates. However, this does not mean that netbooks have lost their value or importance. In fact they have just gotten better. Toshiba just made its mark with its latest version of netbook; the Toshiba nb505.

The Toshiba NB505 exists in a number of colors, including: turquoise, orange, green, brown, and blue. Its lid poses a rubbery feel which gives it a smooth grip. You will definitely like the dimpled patterns on the back of this netbook and its recessed power button. Its 10.1 inch dimensions allow you to easily carry it around whenever you need it.

Its bottom is equipped with a rubber fitting to avoid any slippage. It might have been a characteristic nature of many netbooks to heat up after you have extensively played a video game or watch a movie. However, extensive use of the Toshiba nb505 has proved it effectively maintains temperatures in the range of between 85 degrees and 90 degrees.

The NB505 has smooth plastic keys that are located close to each other, making typing very easy and comfortable. This netbook provides superb definition thanks to its 10.1 inch LED backlit screen.

View The Acer Aspire One 722 11.6 inch Netbook (AMD Dual-Core Processor C-50, 2 GB RAM, 320 GB, 7 Hours Battery Life, Windows 7 Home Premium) – Blue

Recently Acer has put forward one of the best all round netbooks on the market. The high specification of this small laptop makes it undoubtedly a real benchmark for its rivals to hit. This new laptop is powered by AMD’s CX series processor and 2GB of RAM, which is accompanied with a long battery life. This design has enabled Acer to offer the netbook at a considerably affordable price.

You do not have to complain about the design of the Acer Aspire One 722, since it features a classic look that is defined by the following aspects: it has tapered edges accompanied by clear lines, and its ripple effective lid. For the aquamarine version its colour covers both the lid and the keyboard deck. However if aquamarine doesn’t take your fancy you can still go for either the red or black version.

The aspire one 722 is basically lighter due to its dimensions and weight (11.2 x 7.29 x 1.0 inches; and 3 pounds). Apart from being lighter this laptop is also easy to carry around whenever you want. Some may try to compare this tablet’s weight with some of the well-known netbooks on the market. Well, it is a bit heavier on comparison but individually this small laptop is portable to carry all day long.Acer Aspire One 722

Unlike any other netbook, the 722′s keyboard present a good satisfaction to the user. However, the keys offer limited tactile response and springiness. So, when you are typing you have to beware of the keys’ nature not to make mistakes. On the other hand, the netbook’s touch pad offers excellent performance. This is also due to the fact that it is large enough (3.2×2.0-inch) to offer an adequate surface for even the largest fingers. The touch pad’s left and right click are also easy to distinguish due to the single long mouse bar underneath the touch pad.

The Aspire One 722 has the best display and audio components one can ever wish for. It has an LED backlit display of 11.6 inch, 1366×768 resolution. It is also equipped with a glossy finished screen. Its resolution offers a wider view for more than two people. The netbook is also equipped with two small speakers located on the front lip. The speakers are effective enough to produce moderate desirable loudness. In addition, the tablet features a standard spread of ports including: HDMI, 3 USB, and VGA.

View The eMachines 355 10.1 inch Netbook (Intel Atom N455 Processor, 1 GB RAM , 250 GB HDD, Windows 7 Starter 32-bit) – Black

Acer have rebranded a number of their netbooks under the name of eMachines and their latest offering the eMachines E355 is proving to be one of their big sellers and contender for the best small laptop title.

The Acer build quality is evident as soon as you open the box, the neat matte finish looks stylish and avoids fingerprint marking. The 10.1 inch display is impressive, with colours looking clear and bright. The graphics are powered by the netbook’s Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 and watching movies or video is crisp and smooth.

What we really liked was the thickness, at just 1 inch the netbook proves to be compact and thin as well as still being extremely sturdy. Clearly Acer have learnt experience from their previous efforts at producing small laptops. For users who are on the go, this netbook will be the perfect solution.

The keyboard is set up well and is easy to type on, with gaps between each key, good for people with larger fingers. The touchpad comes with multi gesture technology, allowing you to scroll up and down and zoom in and out of apps using the pinch functionality.emachines e355

The netbook comes powered by the Intel Atom N455 processor, a standard in the majority of small laptops. The 1GB RAM is also plenty to run multiple tasks and ensure the netbook is responsive, and there is also the ability to upgrade to 2GB. The eMachines E355 also has a whopping 250 GB hard drive, allowing you to store plenty of music and video.

Battery life is a little bit disappointing in comparison to other netbooks available on the market. The maximum life available is around 4 hours which is below average.

REVIEW
Sony continue their production of high quality products with the stylish Sony Vaio M Series. This netbook series has proved to be a huge seller already and the M13M1E is the biggest of them all. This small laptop is elegant yet simple to use and packed with high spec components.

The first thing to notice on this laptop is the LED display. The screen picture proves to be extremely sharp and of high quality so despite the 10.1 inch screen, so watching movies and videos on this laptop is not an eye sore.

Read Buyer Reviews on Sony Vaio M13M1Esmall-laptops

The Sony Vaio M13M1E comes with a 250GB hard drive, a standard now amongst most netbooks so plenty of room for storing a large number of files. This small laptop has an Intel Atom 1.83 GHz processor and coupled with Windows 7, all of its features can be handled easily. Accessing the internet and being able to handle multiple programs becomes effortless.

The smooth finish makes this an elegant machine and the netbook does not become covered with finger prints easily. The netbook comes with a built in wecbcam allowing you to carry out video calls effortlessly.

The only thing we would suggest would be considering a RAM upgrade after purchasing this small laptop. This will give the laptop the ability to respond even quicker than it does already. We were also slightly unimpressed with the built in speakers, the sound quality proves to be lacking slightly.

Overall this is one of the best netbooks available on the market and as usual Sony have produced another high quality product which will rival any of its competitors.

Battery Life: Over 8 hours
Processor Speed: Intel Atom N455 1.66 GHz
Hard Drive: 250 GB
RAM: 1GB DDR3 RAM 

REVIEW

HP have opted to give their netbooks a facelift and have now re-entered the market with the HP Mini 210. The immediate appeal is the excellent colours HP have provided, with colours on the bottom side as well as the lid. This helps to give the laptop a great finish and makes it very appealing looks wise.

The laptop is sturdy as well, the screen and keyboard are protected well by the outer shell. The other excellent feature is that upgrading components in this small laptop is very easy. A panel at the back of the netbook can be removed and memory and hard drive upgrades become extremely simple. We found this to be a very good feature as most other machines require the removal of many screws. This can be done witgh only the use of your hand.

Read Buyer Reviews on HP Mini 210

The screen in the HP Mini 210 is of good quality and the picture is of a decent standard. Some versions offer a 1366 x 768 display capabilities on the glossy 10.1 inch screen, this allows windows to be displayed properly and avoids excessive scrolling.

The speakers on the HP Mini 210 are of a very average quality, many other netbooks on the market provide better sound levels.

This small laptop has a 93% Chiclet keyboard. The first thing you realise is how easy it is to type with little feeling of being cramped. This makes the netbook feel like a normal laptop. The machine also comes with 3 USB 2.0 ports, audio, Ethernet as well as a SDHC card slot and webcam. The HP is slightly lacking when it comes to connectivity with only 802.11bg wireless.

A unique feature about the HP Mini 210 is the absence of any buttons on the touchpad. Instead the manufacturers have opted for a touchpad. Unfortunately we found that using the touchpad can cause problems with unwanted scrolling and pointer movement.

The battery life on this laptop is a definite plus, with over 8 hours of battery life available.

Overall the HP Mini 210 is a good competitor in the market, aesthetically pleasing, this netbook has helped to bring HP back into the fold.

REVIEW

Small Laptops Guide managed to get our hands on the Samsung N145. We are a fan of the Samsung netbook range, they are stylish and excellent value for money, without losing anything on performance. This small laptop offering also proves to be the same. 1GB of memory, an Intel Atom N450 Processor and 3 USB 2.0 ports plus up to 10 hours battery life help to make this a great little laptop.

The Samsung N145 has a very simple and stylish look, with Samsung opting to for a matt finish rather than a shiny one. The case on this small laptop is sturdy and robust and opening the lid is no issue with one hand or two. The hinges seem strong as well in comparison to other machines. This netbook can definitely handle use of heavysmall laptops handed men and The Samsung N145 is also available in a pink colour making it very appealing to women as well.

One thing to remember is although Samsung have advertised this machine as having a battery life up to 10 hours, this is really more like 6. Still this is longer than most similar items and definitely longer than most.

The keyboard is also easy to use although the touchpad is a little small, however it does seem robust and could handle plenty of clicking. The display is also clear, a standard Intel Graphics card and Atom processor make it extremely similar to its competitors regarding specifications.

The best things about the N145 are the noise and temperature levels. The machine is extremely quiet and stays cool despite heavy use.

Overall at such a cheap price, this stylish netbook is definitely a great buy, its affordable price of under £200 is a steal. We often admire the Samsung netbooks here at Small Laptops Guide and this offering is no different.
