Best Netbooks - Cherrypal's Cheap Netbook for under $100

Cherrypal Inc. has just announced the launch of its netbook which it has named Africa. It may not be one of the best netbooks around but it certainly is good value for money and one of the cheapest netbooks currently available under $100. It is not, however, the absolute cheapest netbook available, that honor goes to the Menq EasyPC E790 at just S80 - for more information on the Menq see cheap netbook for under $100.

The Menq EasyPC E790 also has a 7" screen but only half the memory, neither of these would claim to be one of the best netbooks money can buy but at under $100 they will certainly be attractive to a lot of people.

Best Netbooks Samsung N310

In the market for a netbook? Then why not go for one of the best netbooks currently available - the Samsung N310 Not only is it powerful for a netbook they also went to the trouble of getting Japanese artists Naoto Fukasawa to design it - now that's got to be worth something ! In their words the Samsung N310Best NEtbooks Samsung N310 "features smoothly rounded edges that resemble a pebble that's been worn down by wind and waterfall" that sounds like sort of thing a Japanese designer would say. We say it's a computer in a clamshell that does what it says on the shell.

Best Netbooks - Samsung N310

It comes in sunset orange, midnight blue, mint blue. The keyboard and screen bezel are however jet black which creates a snazzy eye-popping color scheme.

The rocker-bar style mouse is not so hot for a netbook that would like to be one of the best netbooks on the market, but we would have preferred separate left and right buttons.

The keys on the flat-topped keyboard that are similar to a Sony Vaio. Typing is comfortable, and important keys are pretty large.

The screeen is 10.1" LED with a 1,024x600 resolution, which is pretty standard for netbooks, although some netbooks often have 1,366x768 screens, particularly the more expensive ones.

Audio Stereo speakers, headphone/microphone jacks headphone/microphone jacks

Networking Ethernet, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
Optical drive DVD burner None

The Samsung N310 is fitted with the Intel Atom N270 processor and 1GB of RAM and both perform the same as on other similar netbooks.

Battery life is around 5 hours 30 minutes, with a 6-cell battery (included).

All in all a pretty good netbook as long as you remember that a net book is not a noteook and was never meant to be for the difference between netbooks and notebooks see - netbook or notebook. The Samsung N310 is however one of the best netbooks around but you might like to check out the Acer Ferrari Netbook if you like really bright colours !
