Netbook vs low-spec Notebook
Our English department are very keen for new equipment (laptops) and their only use really is internet/word processing. The management our very keen on adopting netbooks simply due to the cheap price, however we're not convinced this is the best way forward, especially when you can get low spec dual-core laptops for not much more and also not really knowing what they will want from them in years to come.
Just want opinions on the matter really and whether netbooks are suitable or not. We want to put an arguement forward why it would be better going for the usual laptop route than netbooks.
We're an RM CC4 network so there will be quite a bit going on in the background, but need a bit more than that really for arguement justification. For instance, I have seen Celeron dual-core Samsung laptops with 3yrs warranty for £330 each which compares to the price of a netbook with a single core processor.
