Which is the best netbook of 2017
If you are looking for best netbook of 2017, our laptop and desktop experts will help you make the right choice. Netbooks in 2017 are more powerful than ever thanks to the newer Intel processors that let you do much more than just net-surfing. The newer processors are more efficient too, and the best netbook models of 2017 can give you more than 8-9 hour of battery life on one charge. Now, you just cannot buy any netbook so our laptop team researched and reviewed countless netbooks of 2017 and came up with a list containing the best ones.
When you are buying a netbook, you need to ask to find the ideal screen size for yourself. If you are all about extreme portability, then a netbook with 10 inch screen will ideal for you. If you prefer a slightly larger chassis, you will not only get a bigger display but a more comfortable keyboard as well. A bigger chassis allows gives manufactures more room to squeeze in a bigger battery pack so a bigger 11.6” netbook might run for longer durations as well.
For instance, a netbook with 11.6” screen will get you a near full size laptop keyboard which will help you type longer documents without feeling jaded. The keys have better travel and are full size as well. Bigger chassis allows laptop manufactures to get bigger touchpads onboard. While they are still smaller than your typical mainstream laptop, they are big enough for doing the usual windows 10 gestures and navigating around the applications.
Third thing to look out for are ports. Some of the manufactures are churning out models containing only one USB port and we totally ignore such manufactures. We do not want the users to use USB port multipliers just to connect two or more peripherals. If a netbook does not come with a minimum of two USB ports and an HDMI, it will not make to our best netbook list.
Four thing is touchscreen: This is an optional features but more and more laptop and desktop manufactures have started churning out touchscreen all in one computers and laptops. This is because windows 10 is much more touchscreen friendly. Normally, a touchscreen netbook is more expensive than a regular netbook but it is totally worth it as you can use your netbook as a windows 10 tablet as well.
