One of the questions I get asked most frequently is “which netbook is the best?” The answer is: that depends. It depends on what keyboard you find the most comfortable, and how much value you put on battery life, size, or price. In other words, some folks will be willing to pay less and get a laptop with a 3 cell battery, while others wouldn’t consider anything without a 6 cell battery — but refuse to carry around anything with a screen larger than 9 inches.
Laptop Magazine Editor in Chief Mark Spoonauer put together an excellent netbook buying guide video, which you can check out after the break. He hits all the points I suggest first-time netbook buyers consider. And like me, he refuses to suggest that any one netbook will fit everyone’s needs.
