PC Pitstop offers online diagnostic tools for finding problems with your PC and tuning it up. In other words, they come in contact with a lot of PC users. This week the company published the results of a survey asking netbook user about their satisfaction with their little laptops. The results? Overall, it looks like a lot people are pretty happy with their netbooks. The top 9 machines had user ratings of 3 or more stars out of 4.
The MSI Wind U100, Asus Eee PC 1000HE, Samsung NC10, Asus Eee PC 1000H, and Acer Aspire One snagged the top 5 spots. And fewer than 17% of the people owning each of those netbooks complain that their systems are slow. Less than 6% complained about their computers freezing.
Of course, an Intel Atom based computer is going to be slower than a lot of laptops out there. But the point is that these netbooks are fast enough for most of the tasks users expect them to run, and customer satisfaction seems to be pretty high.
