NETBOOKS innovation at it’s best.
NETBOOKS are the new small breed of notebooks, they may look a bit like your typical notebook but they operate different compared to NOTEBOOKS. They are portable and stylish but there is a theory behind their beauty.
NETBOOKS (also called mini notebooks or subnotebooks) are a rapidly evolving category of small, light and inexpensive laptop computers suited for general computing and accessing web-based applications; they are often marketed as "companion devices”.
They style of working, typically rely on online applications and services which do not require powerful hardware on the local computer. Some NETBOOKS do not even have a conventional hard drive Such NETBOOKS use solid-state storage devices instead, as these require less power and are smaller, lighter and generally more shock-resistant, but have a shorter read-write-cycles life. On NETBOOKS
, which generally have no optical disk drive, application software is typically transferred over a network or read from a USB device. An external hard drive can be used via USB port.
Wireless has taken its stand in making life easy for internet users and NETBOOK took the advantage. Seeing that all NETBOOKS on the market today support Wi-Fi wireless networking and many can be used on mobile telephone networks with data capability (for example, 3G). Mobile data plans are supplied under contract in the same way as mobile telephones. Some also include Ethernet and/or modem ports, for broadband or dial-up Internet access, respectively.
Looking into their software side and how this small phenomenal machine operates, one will be glad to hear that a NETBOOK will run any software that its operating system supports. Since the hardware architecture is similar to personal computers, it was easy to port the major, contemporary operating systems to the NETBOOK
, and thus achieve machine independence and transparency for their applications. Some vendors provide dual choices for consumers to choose from, either Linux or Windows XP.
The NETBOOK’s operating systems is not only WINDOWS and LINUX there is a variety to tryout like:
