Ok, im kinda at a situation of should I get a netbook or a laptop.
The issue im stuck at is I spec'd out a dell netbook (I have a dell credit card and dont see getting anything else or funds otherwise) and after everything was tweaked to my liking (larger batt + warranty) the cost was almost $600
I understand a netbook isnt meant to replace a laptop but I never generally did all that much on my old P4 laptop.
But im kinda debating if I want to limit myself to a netbook, or should I just get a really cheap laptop.
Dell offers a 16gb ssd or a 160gb hdd, I know speeds are nice on the ssd, but compared how much better is battery life with a ssd over hdd. That's the one thing I always hated on my old laptop 2hours of batt then swap or plug in.
I dont generally watch movies on my laptop, though if everything but 1080 content will play fine that is good enough for me. xvid, h.264. im not very familiar with the atom.
