Determine Your Laptop Using the Netbook Flowchart

Ok, so you just got a new laptop. You’ve been hearing about this whole “netbook” thing that’s all the rage these days, and you wonder: am I cool? Do I have a netbook? You launch the internet (that blue E), and you ask Google “Do I have a netbook?” soon, you’ll be swarmed by loads of terms that all seem to mean the same thing: a really small laptop. Enter The Register’s netbook flowchart.

Netbook. Small laptop. Subnotebook. Ultra-portable. Mini-notebook. Ultra-thin notebook. Cheap laptop. Handheld. I-don’t-give-a-damn-top. That’s just a selection of possible names for the machine you just bought. You thought you just bought a laptop? You simpleton, of course you didn’t. Here’s a simple and clear flow-chart (from The Register) which can help you find out what exactly you just spent money on.

So there.
