I was thinking about buying my daughter a netbook. She wants to go on facebook so would a netbook be good enough for that. Thanking you in advance for your advice, Bev.
It’s a good question, Bev. The idea of a netbook is simply to get onto the Internet so it’s perfect if your daughter simply wants to be on Facebook.
The trap with netbooks is going on the net is all they are designed for. To keep the costs down, they have smaller hard drives, few USB ports and usually no DVD drive.
So if your daughter decides she wants to do something more than go onto Facebook, write blogs or Twitter she’ll find the netbook will struggle.
All of that said, netbooks are cheap and the best choice if you want a starter computer for a teenager. We have a little more on netbooks at our PC Rescue website.
