Over the holiday season, I helped my users to pick laptops. To my surprise, those so-called netbooks have occupied the top spots of the best selling list. I have complied a list of several popular netbooks running Windows XP.
If you look at all the models available on the market, you can see a lot of variations. However, the popular models are similar in spec. They typically have the Atom N270 Processor, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB hard drive, and 1.3 M camera. You can not go wrong with any model listed here.
One thing to note is these netbooks have a smaller keyboard and trackpad. Before you buy one, you might want to try one at your local retailer and see if you can live with them.
