So, they're the same thing then, why do they give them different names if 
they're one and the same, how silly!!

Thanks

  Hi Tracey,

   

  A Netbook is a UMPC.

   

  All the best

  What capacity of memory does it have in comparison with a netbook and while 
I'm on the subject, what's the difference between a netbook and a UMPC?

    Hi Barbara

    I'm using the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 netbook which does have the 3 cell 
battery but has solid state  storage rather than hard disk - I suppose not 
havvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvving a hard disk helps the battery conserve more 
energy - I haven't had it long enough to check times but I think it gets at 
least 3 or 4 hours from it.

    My requirements for a netbook were that it was small and light with good 
connectivity - the Dell has that. An 8.9 inch screen and smaller keyboard 
brings down the weight and size nicely. The keyboard although smaller is 
perfectly usable touchtyping-wise after a little use. I also liked the Vodafone 
offer of unlimited connectivity built-into the computer itself, no extra 
dongles.  It works well on the 3g network and hdsa (not sure of the initials) 
everywhere.

     

    Hope this helps.

      Further to the Samsung NC10 thread, has anyone tried any other netbooks? 
Such as Acer or Asus?
