The point of a netbook is to be a mobile device that will enable you to do essential computer work on the go. They are tiny enough to put them in your bag and batteries can last for a decent amoung of time.

You can use netbooks for:

- Surfing web
- Social sites
- Youtube
- Word processing (and complete office work for that matter)
- Chat
- Downloading stuff overnight using only a fragment of the power your desktop would use.
- Do everything else that doesn't require C2Quad or GTx280 graphics

You CAN'T:
- Render
- Play new 3D games
- Watch 1080p videos

If you get a netbook with ION or Brazos, you can also:
-play new games at very low quality
-watch 1080p

- can't render one frame from transformers movie.
- can't play dvd/bd without an external player.

Source Engine is an exception, not the norm. Most 1st person and 3rd person games generally uses a game engine that is more demanding than the Source Engine.

Of course, Valve has been upgrading the Source Engine ever since Half-Life 2 has been released so in it's current state it is a little more demanding than it was back then.

As popatim has stated, it would be like a glorified smartphone. It can do just about anything a smartphone can do except make phone calls.

When comparing a netbook to a laptop, let's just say it is an underpowered laptop.

Assignment was probably due monday so....

notebooks can't replace wheeljacks,

Manage flight vector trajectories for atmospheric re-entry (factoring in a 30% power loss on the port engine and the fact that the primary buffer panel just fell off)

skateboard, at all

Move like Jagger,
play the blues
and finally, the one thing a netbook really can't do, (Are you ready?)

Mend a broken heart......

Aaaw

I use my tablet for school work......I guess it replaces some stuff, but I just don't think spending the money for a netbook is worth it.

A netbook makes a good doorstop.

But since the OP never responded back I guess we should just let this thread die.
