What you buy will depend mostly on what you are using for, how you are using it, and how portable you need it. A netbook will have a very basic version of Windows 7 that will run better on the limited processing power, limited RAM, etc. You would use a netbook if you need very portable and are only planning to check emails, do a little web browsing, maybe some Facebook, etc. Very slow for much else. If you need portable but more powerful you might need a laptop which will do most of what a desktop can do except for graphics intensive needs like gaming, Cad prog, etc. Laptops with upgraded processors, larger RAM, and upgraded graphics for gaming can be three times the price of a basic laptop. If you do not need the portability, then the best bang for your buck is a desktop, where an extra hundred or two over the basic can get you much more computer, and a basic gaming system can be had for a little more. Also with a decent desktop computer you can upgrade components if/when the need arrives. Windows 7 Home Premium is the way to go if at all possible, the 32bit version with 2Gb up to 4GB RAM, and 64bit version with 4GB RAM or more.

Here are links to 2 sites that show charts comparing the versions. The main difference on Starter is that there are no multi-medial apps or codecs for playing music or high end video.



I have one of these on display when a customer asks the difference on the laptops and netbooks I sell.
