Re: whats the difference between a netbook and a mini laptop
nothing they are one in the same as far as i know. I never hear anyone use the term mini laptop. I guess a mini laptop would have a 13in screen. Netbook screens are much smaller though

i have a HP mini and its nice for when you are on the go

Calling it a "Netbook" sounds technical and rooks people who don't know better out of more money.

Other than that? Not much.

Re: whats the difference between a netbook and a mini laptop
Netbook is just a fancy term for a stripped-down, small-sized laptop. By this I mean that they have sub-par internal parts (usually, unless you pay big $$) that are built to be small and lightweight, not powerful.

So basically, a Netbook is used strictly for web-browsing and light media usage (music, movies, photos, etc). However, they are NOT recommended for development (web design, video editing, etc) or gaming.

Linux is a free alternative to Microsoft Windows. They use Linux to save the $100-300 license for Windows.

Any commercial computer (sold by a name brand like Dell, Sony, etc) will be able to run Windows, you'll just need to buy / install it.

As for Word docs / Excel spreadsheets, yes. Any computer made since like 1998 can open those documents, as long as you have Microsoft Office or Openoffice.org (free) installed on your computer (to open the files).

Hope that helps.
