Not better -- differently abled !

Bigger screen and keyboard. Optical drive.

Heavier, bigger, more expensive.

Netbook -- boots up quickly. lighter. easier to carry, becasue it is small. It is slow into processing items such as rendering stuff...

Notebook -- more feature packed, but doesn't boot up as quickly (not a big difference). larger screen, usually have optical drive and is much more powerful. Have larger screen area (resolution). It is more worthwhile to get a notebook if you're getting a software job because a larger screen area I'm sure it is easier to write your program with more screen space than with a cramped 1024x600 in which you have to endlessly scroll up and down and left and right :) 

by the way, b.tech = Bachelor of Technology ?
