Hi-I am taking online classes and need something portable to take where ever when I need to work on a class away from my destop. What is right for me laptop, notebook, netbook? I just bought a new desktop-so don't want to spend huge amount of money-fairly lightweight 13 or 15 inch ok. Any suggestions?

Hi there,

If you will only be doing classwork on your new portable computer, I would recommend a netbook. They are the lightest option and generally the least expensive option. Plus, netbooks have great battery life. Check out the Dell Inspiron Mini 10. It is a great option for a student because it has a larger keyboard than many netbooks (so you'll feel like you are typing on a full-size laptop). You can see the full specs here:

What do you think of the Dell?
