I've been coming around a few times, trying to read-up on certain products and what not.
quite frankly, I am a little disappointed not able to find much relations to Netbooks or Notebooks.
at times i questioned myself, if Netbooks and Notebooks are actually legitimate synonyms.
if so, it is apparent PCWorld has been ignoring those synonyms for quite sometime.
i just think it's a tad odd.
Not sure what you are really after/talking about.
The PCWorld website section for "reviews" has a top 10 netbooks list in the Laptop section:
FWIW, traditionally speaking the term laptop and notebook are used kind of interchangeably, although laptop is generally thought of as the more generic term than notebook while notebook these days is thought of more as a "regular" sized laptop as opposed to a netbook. As such, notebook and netbook are generally not thought of as synonyms. Netbooks are basically a sub-set of laptops as laptop is generally the more generic term for all "portable computers".
