Smaller, cheaper and do most things that a normal laptop can do. They aren't as powerful as "normal" laptops since they generally have only a single processor and a decent graphics card, but so long as you aren't a 3-d gamer, you'll find they are just fine. The screen is only 10" and the keyboard is a tad smaller, but they are only half the price as a normal laptop as well. Give me a call if you want to talk.

PS. My son is getting a netbook for Christmas. TigerDirect has some great deals.
