This sounds bizarre i know....for ages i have been humming and aarghing over getting a netbook for my son. i love the samsung nc10 and n130 and could afford one of those. Really practical they love searching the internet etc and i could use it as well. due to size they could also take it out of the house which we have never done before even with our other older laptop.
However...heres the big problem....when we go on holiday it would be lovely if they could use a laptop to watch a few fims etc on but i have no idea of laptop prices and whats good and whats not.
Would it make sense or even work to buy an external cd drive thing that we could take with the netbook when we go away or would that not work, screen size, compatibility etc. it seems a good idea if it would work as we only go away 2 or 3 times a year and a netbook is more suited the rest of the year. Is this possible. Could they watch films on a netbook or is it not possible.
If its not possible if anyone can recommend a laptop i would appreciate it.
