Default Re: Netbook for College

Some netbooks like the original eeepc have "solid state" drives which are basically just compact flash being used as a hard drive. It cuts down on size, power and cost, but don't mistake them with the much higher performance solid state drives that you can buy for regular laptops and desktops these days. One of those drives will easily cost as much as a netbook.

It really comes down to use, if you like to have your music with you (and you have a decent amount) you'll want a disk based hard drive, if size is not an issue you can use whatever, a 16gig flash based drive would probably be fine.

Cool, thanks a ton guys.

Dell's outlet mini 10s are mostly "Promise Pink" ones haha... how exciting...

I think having the lower res screen might bother me a bit, so I'll look into getting that HD 1366 x 768 screen instead, assuming I have the wiggle room to do that. I'm not really supposed to get my netbook until late summer before I head off, mainly because I'm REALLY supposed to be trying to pay for everything else...
