I want to buy a Laptop Netbook. But I checked the prices and I found that netbooks happen to be a lot more expensive in Japan than they are in Europe. The cheapest laptop I have seen in Tokio in the almost four weeks has been Yen, and that is one with japanese software.
People said laptops with an english system will be even more expensive. I find this laptop netbook. Here is the general introduction:

Are you looking for just the cheapest thing you can find, or do you have plans for use? Are you fully aware of limitations of netbooks.

Many times with netbooks, people have some wrong thoughts as to what can be done with them, then come the issues with games, movie watching, small keyboard or screen, etc.. and they end up spending more for a real laptop as well as wasting money on the netbook they don't want to use.

Before commiting to a netbook, think about what you will be using this thing for, and think ahead 2-3-4 years as notebooks are not very upgradable.

Thank you very much.

I thought the netbook is cheaper.

I do not like to play games but I like to watch movies.

A netbook would not run many movies well, and has issues even with good quality streaming video. Plus no DVD player.

You may want to look at some lower end laptops

The Lenovo cloudy2010 posted would be OK also, although it has a pretty weak CPU and a smaller screen, but is about $100 cheaper.

The issue with laptops, you can't just get the cheapest one ans forget about it, like I said before, you can't upgrade them. $100,200 saved now will cost $500 later when you find you are getting frustrated because it can't run something.

I will think about it.
