    Notebooks=standard laptops with screen sizes ranging from 14"-18" or larger
    Specs can reach from 1.6ghz single core all the way to quad core 2.6 ghz.
    Usually 2 GB of memory or more for now a days. But can easily go up to 8gbs on some of the higher end notebooks.
    15.6" screens seem to be the usual
    DVD burner standard on almost every notebook, or blu ray player optional.
    Often have larger batteries (6 cell compared to netbooks with 3-4 cells)
    Webcams sometimes come in the $400+ notebooks.
    GPU's can also suck but some higher end models (generally $600+) can come with decent integrated or dedicated mobility GPU's.

    Netbooks=Smaller then laptops with screen sizes ranging from 7"-13"
    Smaller than notebooks
    Specs usually reach from 1.2 ghz single core-2.0 ghz single core. (Sometimes a 1.4 ghz dual core processor can be placed)
    No space for a dvd burner
    3-4 cell battery standard
    Often come with webcams, but not a standard yet.
    keyboards are smaller
    1gb to 3gbs of memory can be found on netbooks.
    GPU's often blow, and with no option for gaming (there is an exception, that's an Asus netbook model= N10 I believe.
  2. A notebook is a mobile computer with a full sized keyboard and a flip up monitor. It does not have space for built in optical or floppy disk drives but instead provides communication ports so that an external drive can be connected. This allows a notebook to be much thinner than a laptop.


    A netbook or mini PC is a mobile computer with a keyboard smaller than full size (some are less than half the size) and a flip up monitor. It also does not have space for built in storage drives but does provide ports for connecting an external drive.
  3. Netbooks are indeed smaller than notebooks; we usually say that a netbook can have a screen up to 10 inches from corner to corner. Netbooks are cheap and have relatively slow processors, but this is because they are designed for more basic tasks.
