in Netbook Buying Guide

I wish I could safely claim that my jargon-free guide to buying netbooks is the best and the only one that you will ever need to read before parting ways with your hard earned money to purchase one.

Alas, no. There are many netbook buying guides that have popped up since these mini-laptops became the craze from nowhere. There are so many of them (the ultra-portable notebooks) that it gets confusing for the shopper.

I have compiled a selection of the best buyer’s guides to netbooks that are out there. They all are pretty good (just like mine of course:)) as they’re written by people who live and breathe notebooks.  So, by the time you read through a couple of them, you will be the most up to date person and you will be able to spot and buy the best netbook without even trying. You will even find yourself advising friends and family members on what to buy and what to stay away from.

If you come across some interesting guide to buying the best notebook by all means please drop me a line and I will gladly include it here. Thanks in advance!

Without further ado, let’s get to it. Enjoy!
