Which Is It?

February 15th, 2011 | Posted in Computers, Marketing | Comments Off

Recently some folks I know got matching computers for Christmas. This brings to mind a question about terminology that, for some reason, has escaped me for years.

You see when I look at those computers they look like laptops to me. The confusion comes when I see that, technically speaking, they’re toshiba netbooks. I have a toshiba laptop. It’s called a laptop on the website I bought it from and on the toshiba page that talks about the same machine.

The computers in question look very much like my laptop and they have very similar specs and capabilities. So I ask you, what’s the difference between a netbook and a laptop? IS there a difference? Or is it all just a name game that doesn’t really mean anything?
