Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone please help with this?

    What is the difference between a laptop and a laptop notebook?

    I'm a complete tech mong and haven't got a scoobies
  2. msr

    msr LE

    Can you post the model numbers up?
  3. I can later on this afternoon, I'll have to pop home to get them
  4. I never thought there was a either - I always thought the words were just marketing terms just like entertainment notebook (non-tinny speakers), desktop replacement (shit battery) etc.
  5. It may just be a size thing.. I used to have laptops when I was travelling and these normally had a 15 - 17 inch screen with a CD drive... a conventional laptop if you will. However I found that after a while these could prove to be rather cumbersome.

    So, I now have a Netbook which is the same as a laptop but with a 10 inch screen and no CD drive. Much lighter and easier to transport around. All the software I need is either pre-loaded or downloadable via the 'Net.
    Whether this answers your question Im not sure but I rate the small Netbook that I have.
  6. That would be ideal then. We got the net book with a phone today. The missus can have that and I'll have the old laptop for visiting dusty places.

    Thanks very much for all the info. It really is appreciated
