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?
