    Why not buy a tablet instead?

    "Normal" is just a setting on a washing machine.

    if you're dead set on one, then get a chromebook.

    but netbooks are terrible. they were a fad and they were underpowered cheap pieces of garbage and thats why no one talks about them anymore.

    either get a more robust tablet, or if you really need small portability with a keyboard, get a macbook air.

    more expensive, yes. but also more reliable, useful, well made. netbooks are garbage and you get what you pay for.
