Netbooks have become wildly popular as your second computer and we think HP’s AMD Neo based dv2 is one of the best out there

Netbooks have become wildly popular as your second computer due to their portability. We recommend the following five Netbooks for October 2009.

The dv2 walks a fine line between a Netbook and a standard Notebook. Based on the AMD Neo 1.6GHz CPU that wants to compete with the Atom, yet featuring 512MB of dedicated video memory that allows you to watch HD movies on its gorgeous 11.x inch screen. Battery life could be better though.

From the people that invented the Netbook segment, the EeePC 1101 cuts through the fat in a nice slim form factor that adds a higher-res screen and an overclocking mode to get the best out of your CPU. Unfortunately, the GMA500 based graphics controller is a bit under-powered.

The Dell Mini 10 is a cute little netbook that will get things along with feeling right at home in either a man or a woman’s hand due to its availability in multiple colors.
AED 1399

A very well thought out and designed netbook, the NC10 has one of the best keyboards without sacrificing style. Specs are pretty much identical to all other netbooks such as a 1.6GHz Atom with 1GB RAM.

We know that Sony doesnt like to call it a Netbook but its specifications suggest otherwise. Remove Vista from it and put an O/S thats netbook friendly and you have a killer machine as far as size and looks are concerned that is second to none.
