How to find the perfect netbook

We have been attacked by so many new netbooks lately and many were left wondering; which one is the best, which one is the right one for them. They’re not alone, I have been wondering about the same questions too for quite some time and today I may have found some answers.

David Ackerman from CNET did some excellent quick reviews on the following netbooks which are available in the market today:
  1. Asus Eee PC 901
  2. Asus Eee PC 1000
  3. Acer Aspire One
  4. MSI Wind
  5. Sylvania G Netbook

David Ackerman has some good points there, pointing the fact that the perfect netbook is yet to be seen. Unless we have some other big technological changes coming in the near future, I have to agree with David that the perfect netbook today must have the following features:
  1. The latest Intel Atom Processor
  2. Big storage capacity (David recommends a minimum of 12GB Solid-state Drive)
  3. Runs on Windows XP
  4. 9” screen
  5. Long battery life (David recommends a minimum of 3 hours of battery life)
  6. Cheap & affordable (David seems to be comfortable with a $499 price tag)

There you go folks. Keep those points in mind before you go shopping for any new netbook. I think it would be wise if we do nothing for a few more months, let’s just wait for the perfect netbook to come into the market.

The shortlist is a big fail and so outdated.

Where's the HP mininote? The Cloudbook?

What the hell is a Sylvania G? Is it even relevant to Malaysians?

Malaysians also have access to the Twinhead e10. Twinhead has been around for quite a while and they have been under-mentioned.

Like you said to wait as well, no mention at all about the upcoming ones from Dell or Gigabyte.

Dear Anonymous,

CNET's list maybe look outdated to you but those netbooks that they have chosen for the review are selling much better in the international market than your netbooks (referring to those brands that you have mentioned).

Let's take a look at it this way. A lot of Malaysians are driving their stupid Proton cars but that doesn't mean only Proton makes good cars in the world today.

Grow out of your coconut-shell, Anonymous. The world is bigger than Petaling Street & Low Yatt Plaza.
