Netbook and Laptop Deals for Christmas Gifts

Scouring the Internet for netbook deals as Christmas gifts ? Well so was I and so far haven't found any - but I have found a couple of Dell Laptop deals that will save you $150 or $130 !

I was looking for laptop and netbook deals online that can also be used for Christmas presents, so that I don't have to stand in line in the cold and found two decent deals on Amazon  for laptops reduced by $150 and $130 - both of the laptops are made by Dell.

The first is the Dell Inspiron i17R-2248MRB 17.3-Inch Laptop (Mars Black)Del Inspiron i17R it has an Intel Core i5-460M 2.53GHz with Turbo Boost up to 2.8GHz, 3MB Cache - 500GB Hard Drive; 8x CD/DVD Burner (Dual-Layer DVD+/-R Drive) 4GB RAM; Combo eSATA/USB 2.0 (1); USB 2.0 (3); HDMI and VGA; RJ45 Ethernet; 1 Half Mini-Card Slot; 1 Headphone Jack; 1 Microphone Jack

The other Dell laptop deal is the Dell Inspiron iM5030-3413B3D 15.6-Inch Laptop - 3D Blackwhich will save you $130 - if you buy them both of course you save $280 ! - at least that's what the marketing men woud have you believe - however the iM5030-3413B3D is a bit smaller than the previous Dell - with a 15.6" screen instead of 17.3" but of course that makes it 2 pounds lighter and a bit more portable. It's also very slightly slower but still fast enough - apart from that these laptops are very similar but the 15.6" is $499.99 instead of $698.98 for the 17" laptop

Netbook for Christmas

Netbooks for Christmas - Asus EEE PC 1001P

A netbook for Christmas could be a very good idea for a gift if you are willing to spend around $300 - or less in some cases. After the Kindle - Latest Generation Amazon Kindle - which is the No. 1 best-selling electronic product on Amazon - netbooks are very much in demand.

Asus Eee PC 1001-P White
 The Asus Eee PC 1001P-PU17 Seashell NetboksAsus Eee PC 1001P - with Windows 7 Starter and 10.1-inch screen is a very good offering for people on the go as it has excellent wireless connectivity and efficient performance and the price is a not too wallet emptying $299.

It is also very eye-catching with its lattice-work shell. More importantly perhaps you get 11 hours battery life thanks to the ASUS Super Hybrid Engine and the new Intel Atom N450 processor.

It is also very comfortable to use thanks to its large palm rest, and multi-touch trackpad.

It 250GB Hard Disk offers plenty of storage and its 1GB system memory is adequate but can be upgraded to 2GB (you can never have too much memory - but immense hard disks are not necessary).

Wi-Fi networking and Bluetooth 2.1 ensure wireless mobility. It is sold with Windows 7 Starter but if possible you would be better getting ithis upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium (check and get it done before you buy if possible for the extra $50). It is also fitted with an integrated webcam and microphone for chatting if you are the chatty type !

The battery life of 11 hours is excellent so this makes it a really good Netbook asus netbooks
for people who move about a lot. With Christmas less than a month away make sure to buy early to get it deliver on time !

Asus Netbook with Windows 7

Netbook with Windows 7 Asus Eee PC 1015PN

Netbooks with Windows 7 installed are ten a penny, so if you are looking for a netbook and you absolutely need one running Windows 7 then you have a choice between the starter version or a netbook running Windows 7 Home premium. Most people believe that you are actually far better off with Windows 7 Home Premium, the only slight problem is that it will cost you around $50 extra and given that netbooks are suposed to be cheap, anything that pushes the price up is a bit of a contradiction.
Asus Eee PC 1015PN with Windows 7
The new Asus Eee PC 1015PN Netbook with 1.5 GHz Dual Core Intel Atom N550 Processor which is possibly one of the best netbooks currently available, is advertised running both the starter and the Home premium version, but if you don't specify which you want you will probably get the sstater version by default. So make sure you specify that you want the Home Preium version before you part with any cash  - if you can afford it.

According to Asus the Eee PC1015PN is a major change from other netbooks. Most netbooks installa a single core Atom processor. The Eee PC1015PN on the other hand has a Intel Atom N550 dual core processor, which delivers speeds 23% faster at least than single core processor netbooks (according to Asus again).

The following excellent video shows the Asus Eee PC 1015PN being unpacked tand gives you a good idea of what to expect
