In this video Albert of com.puter.tv explains the differences between netbooks and notebooks using the Acer Aspire One netbook and a Toshiba Notebook as example devices. The main differences are summarized below:
Jose Fermoso and Dylan Tweney who are editors for the popular Wired Magazine review the Sylvania g Netbook Meso after a comparison of the new iPod Nano and Microsoft Zune music players.
The two reviewers are not particularly happy with the g Netbook Meso complaining about the small keyboard the missing shift key, the weight that is closer to 3kg that the 2.2kg stated in the product specification and the comparably high price.
Maybe Freddie Mercury would turn over in his grave hearing Queen's Mr. Fahrenheit Don't Stop me Now as the background music for a video demonstrating Firefox and Quake III Arena running on an Acer Aspire One Linux netbook. Certainly Quake addicts will enjoy the fact that they can play their favorite game on a Linux machine anywhere anytime.
A video tour of Acer Aspire One's Linpus Linux Lite desktop interface. You can see how easy it is to access the applications linked from the desktop that is divided in 4 sections called connect, work, fun and files.
As you will notice it takes some patience when OpenOffice.org is first started but subsequent launches of one of the office suite's applications will be way faster.
In this video 3 Intel Atom powered netbooks are compared based on dimensions and keyboards: MSI Wind, ASUS Eee PC 901 and Acer Aspire One. The MSI Wind has a 10" screen whereas Acer Aspire One and ASUS Eee 901 have 8.9" screens. Still the MSI is only slightly wider and thicker than the other 2 netbooks.
The keyboards of MSI Wind and Acer Aspire One are nearly the same size. The ASUS keys are significantly smaller. MSI Wind is the only of these 3 notebooks that has full-sized enter and backspace keys.
