Mini notebook computers are becoming more and more common. The very small size makes them more portable than other styles of notebook computers.
These types of computers are made so small because the internal components are usually either made smaller or they are lacking a few features. Most mini notebook computers are not very powerful, and many of them lack some components that you may be used to having on your regular desktop or standard sized notebook.
A lot of the mini notebooks lack a CD and DVD drive. This feature that many people have gotten used to having on their desktops and laptops are usually left out when these mini notebooks are made so that there is a reduced cost that is passed on to the consumer. It also contributes to their smaller size. Unless you plan on viewing a lot of DVDs on your notebook, this should be no problem to you.
They also usually have hard drives with less space than laptops and, especially, desktops do. Do not be surprised if the harddrives on these computers are between a minuscule 10 GB and 60 GB of storage. However, do not fret as there are easy remedies to these problems. Get a large thumb drive or external hard drive.
If you are a hardcore gamer and plan on getting this to play the newest games on, good luck. These notebooks are meant more for browsing the internet or doing college homework and might be able to play games from the early 2000s, but most likely cannot handle new games like Left4Dead 2 and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.
While mini notebook computers do have their uses, they also have their setbacks.
Unless you’re a hardcore gamer, notebook computers are a great option when researching electronics.
