I am now searching for details with regards to purchasing a pc. I was thinking bout having notebook over laptop coz its not that bulky, but they say I'd rather own a laptop coz it has a big memory than a notebook... I hope I can find what's the preferences of others...

Hi friend first let me tell you that there is not much of a difference between a notebook and a laptop however there is substantial difference between a netbook and a laptop that of memory and others.If you are going to use the computer for your work that involves memory and other graphic facilities then I will advise you to go for a laptop.However if you want to use the machine for internet puirpose then a netbook will be sufficient.In fact I will prefer a netbooki than a laptop under normal circumstances as I have a desktop to combat the memory issue.Hope that you will find this post useful.

notebook and laptop is the same... you probably meant netbook... i have considered a netbook too.. its actually affordable than a laptop... but they say that netbook is only good for surfing the internet.. so i would go for a laptop... the one with good memory so i can save a lot of files.. and some games too..

It all depends on what you are going to use it for. Notebooks have less memory, but are really easy to carry around with you, and can be used for most things (some don't have flash and stuff like that though, so always check that if you are thinking of getting one!), plus they are much cheaper. But if you need to save a lot of stuff on the laptop, or need special features, you might want to go for a laptop instead!

Notebook is versatile, but if the person who wants it does not travel too much,or even no experience with desktop computers, stationary version is better because of the ease of adapting computer technology especially for gamers, video editors and or sound.Notebook as a desktop assistant is the best option.

hi there. laptop/notebook is really better. it's your closest version of a desktop. netbook (or others call notebook) has smaller memory. however, if you are not a heavy user, i suggest that you get a netbook. it's more portable. you can lug it wherever you go.

first off a notebook and laptop mean the exact same thing perhaps you are thinking of a Desktop - otherwise known as a PC which is computer case containing the motherboard, central processing unit (CPU) power unit and cooling fan, SATA or IDE hard drive with operating system of choice i.e windows, linux etc... Netbook - a new breed of portable computer with 3 USB ports, card reader. slim design, Wireless internet and built in webcam it lacks CD or DVD drive capability and is the preferred choice for students in school or for computing where desk space is short Notebook - a laptop it generally has a cd or dvd drive or dual combo drive exceptions of the notebook vs netbook is that the notebook has a bigger screen 15 to 18 inches as opposed to 8 to 10.5 inches and the keys on the keyboard are spaced a bit further apart and the battery is also larger in size to ensure longer run time
