Part of Netbooks For Dummies Cheat Sheet

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.
