I looked at the laptop discussion thread and didn't find the answer I need. I also searched and didn't find anything. Since Netbooks are not exactly the same as regular Laptops, I think discussions about Netbooks warrant its own special post
but in case this topic has been posted already, feel free to let me know if it needs to be moved or whatever.
I currently have a desktop at home and it's sufficient for my current and anticipated bschool needs. However, considering many bschool students carry laptops to campus and many bschool students also use laptops quite often on campus, I'm starting to investigate getting a netbook to carry around on campus.
I'm leaning towards a netbook rather than a laptop b/c it's 1) cheap 2) light weight, smaller size 3) can still run Office Suite and browse the net
The downside w/a netbook that I can see is 1) some models have funky keyboards that are difficult to type with 2) no dvd drives
I'll still use my desktop at home for heavy duty work, but my questions for current bschool students are:
1) how essential would you say having a netbook/laptop is for bschool?
2) would you say that a netbook is good enough for bschool needs? (i.e., would most bschool assignments require anything other than Office and the internet?)
Thanks very much for your help!
