2017. Best Netbooks/ Chromebooks for 2017. Netbooks and Chromebooks are the best! A good netbook is easy to take with you, lightweight, affordable, has a sleek design and is fast. I bought a new netbook for when I travel. Long battery life and weight are most important for me. A good netbook is able to perform all basic functions like surfing the net (it is not called a netbook for nothing), all social networking, some basic text editing, watch a movie. 11 inch laptops have better specs but are not as cheap as a netbook.
Remember when looking for a new netbook: Netbooks ARE NOT full blown laptops and the specs are according to the price: basic. Netbooks are lightweight, have impressive battery life and are easy to take with you. The 11 inch laptop gives you the same portability, are although they cost a bit more, still very affordable but the cpu, motherboard and screen are generally speaking better quality.
The main competitor is the tablet, but I choose my netbook or 11 inch laptop over a tablet to take with me on the road in the USA anytime because it has a normal keyboard, and when I have closed it it is safe. I would never be at ease with a tablet in my bag in fear of breaking the expensive glass screen.
So, When you want to buy a new netbook or 11 inch laptop there are several things to consider like: price, weight, processor, Chromebook or not, Apple or Windows etc.
The Dell Chromebook 11 is the best netbook 2016. It boots in seconds, is easy to use and all Google apps are pre-installed and are updated automaticly. Battery: up to 10 hours. WiFi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, and support for 3G/4G Mobile Broadband as well as Browser based computing allows consumers to sync with other Android phones or tablets.
The Samsung Chromebook 2 is the #2 best netbook for 2015/2016 because it is a real netbook. The bootup is incredibly fast, mere seconds, due to 4Gb of RAM and a 16 Gb SSD. It is also a real netbook because you work as with all Chromebooks in the Google cloud and have to be online to do that. The advantage of that is that all the resources of the netbook are used for being fast and are not ‘wasted’ on running the programs. Other advantages: automatic updates, full protection against viruses and mall-ware, your work is automatically saved. It has no moving parts, is very thin and has very long battery life, up to 9 hours. Read more about Chromebooks here.
