If you visit a computer shop, you can find a wide range of laptops, notebooks and netbooks and laptop stands for bed. There are several brands available in the markets which are offering these products at different prices and technologies. However, when buyers want to purchase a new laptop for first the time they usually stick with a question that what is the difference in laptop vs notebook vs netbook and here they become to confuse. This is a very common question about which people ask and in this article I will discuss about it briefly.
Before making the comparison of laptop vs notebook vs netbook I want to make it clear that these three names are not for same product. These products are totally different from one another in terms of technology, price and usage. First of all, if we see the details of laptops, then it will be clear that laptops are a type of mobile computers, which have all functions just like desktop computers. However, laptops have larger size as compare to other mobile computer products. Usually laptops are also costly and have a higher processing capacity with advance technology and a bigger battery with six cells. Laptop is mostly used for professional purpose and people who want to use a computer for professional purpose or want to do some heavy processing task purchase laptops rather than notebook or netbook.
On the other hand, if we see the details of notebooks then we can easily conclude that notebooks are very similar to laptops. There are just two main factors, which differentiate between a laptop and notebook. The first one is its size and second is weight. Usually notebooks are light weighted and have a bit smaller size as compare to laptops. There is not much difference in price of notebooks and laptops as well. However, usually notebooks are somehow cheaper than laptops. Notebooks can also perform heavy functions and fit for professional usage.
Now if you analyze netbook and compare it with notebooks and laptops, then you can judge that there is a lot of difference in netbook and notebook or laptop. Usually netbooks are very small in size and also cheaper. You can say that it is a form of mini laptops. There are many features which don’t exist in netbook and the main one DVD drive. Usually netbooks don’t contain an optical device. The models of netbooks available in the market have very low specifications. A normal netbook contains 1GB of Ram and 1.6 processor with Atom technology. Still, there is no model in netbook which comes in higher specifications as different laptop and notebook models contain. Netbook is just for usual work, which don’t need higher processing.
