If you’ve researched all the available netbook models, done all of your homework, and narrowed your choices down to one or more netbooks, you’re almost there. Here’s some final advice for buying a netbook:

  • Stick with one of the larger netbook manufacturers.

  • Read buyer reviews and feedback (especially from online retailer Web sites such as Amazon and New Egg).

  • Find a local retailer who stocks netbooks and check them out in person.

  • Shop around as prices can vary — especially online.

  • If you're on a budget, consider a refurbished netbook.
