If you use your Touch unless you backup/sync to iCloud you need a PC to sync to iTunes.
If you like iOS on the Touch you might not like Android on the Nexus 7.
An HP netbook is ok for netbooks, but netbooks are pretty wimpy.
Very personal decision depending on how you use your devices.
Is HP Mini 1000 good for programming students?
Perl, C++, Phyton, PHP, and others
I’m a CS major and I tell EVERYONE to steer clear of HP products. I’ve had nothing but problems every time that I have used their products. My previous HP laptop was sent out 5 times for repair before they replaced it, now my replacements hardware is starting to act up.
Anyway, I program in Java, C(++), VB, PHP, ASP, etc. And I use an Asus Eee PC during school; I love everything about it except the keyboard is hard to get used to and you’ll make alot of typos even when you do get used to it.
what is the difference between a laptop and a netbook?
A mini laptop (or netbook) is essentially a laptop scaled down until the screen size is between 7 and 10 inches across. Most feature simple applications pre-installed. Netbooks aren’t designed to replace laptops, merely supplement it. They cannot match the specs of a laptop, but they can compete on three main things.
1) They are cheaper out of the box – generally, although you can pick up a bargain laptop, it’s unlikely to be brand new
2) The are lighter – with the exception of laptops like the Toshiba Protege R500 which costs a bomb, this is true in almost all cases. Most netbooks weigh around 2-3lbs
3) They are smaller – in almost all dimensions (although the MacBook Air is 194mm thick at it’s thinnest point)
Good examples of netbooks include the Asus Eee PC 901, HP Mini 1000 and Acer Aspire One.
Visual C# 2005 won’t install?
I’m trying to install Visual C# 2005 Express on my netbook running Windows 2000 (HP Mini 1000).
When I run the web installer, an error message will pop up saying:
“The Windows Installer package:
E:Documents and SettingsAdministratorLocal SettingsTempSIT12921.tmpvs_setup.ms_
could not be opened.”
It seems the file is meant to be a .msi file but for some reason shows up as a .ms_ file. I’ve tried manually changing the file extension to .msi and retrying, but it still doesn’t work.
I’ve also downloaded the offline installer, but when I try to run that install, I get another error saying:
“The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2228.”
I’m absolutely positive that Visual C# 2005 is fully compatible with Windows 2000 and I’ve already downloaded all the updates for Windows 2000 from Windows Update. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Thanks!
Install the Visual C# 2012.
WHY DOES EVERYBODY HATE NETBOOKS?
Everyone says that they are failures to the computing world: cramped keyboard, low resolution screen, ridiculously weak, bad quality speakers and overall just a poor solution for people that can’t afford a “real” laptop, and tablets are taking over the ultra-portable computing world anyways.
I love my netbook. It’s an HP Mini 210-4150NR. it’s a beautifully made netbook with a spacious island style keyboard and beats audio that can easily beat the sound quality of some normal sized laptops out there, The resolution is 1024 by 600 and although that may sound like a low resolution display compared to newer screens, the picture of this screen is good enough for me to see every detail on the screen. Since my eyes are horrible, I thought that getting this thing would be a drag since the screen is small and the resolution isn’t much either, I thought I would have to hurt my back by zooming my face to the screen while squinting and straining my eyes. NOPE, the screen on this particular netbook is elevated so that problem is eliminated. This netbook carries the intel atom n2600 clocked at 1,6ghz,,it is a dual core and I’ve boosted the RAM from 1gb ddr3 to 2gb ddr3….BLAZING fast. and I get 8-9 hours from it in every use. I can take this anywhere and do work on it or anything else. (except for game on it ofcourse). Heck, even the adobe suite works great on it.
So, if I can say all of this positive stuff about a netbook and nothing negative, why is everyone against it? I have a ton of bad things I can say about any other tablet on the market.
This is my main machine by the way. Everyone makes me feel so bad for having a netbook, so outdated. If I have this, do I need a tablet?
Andy, you’re right about this netbook being made from the cheapest parts, that is clear seeing that this netbook‘s housing is COMPLETELY plastic. I can’t speak for everyone else, but customer service from hp is great, I can’t say anything bad about them, but that first link’s article definitely says a lot. Here’s where you’re incorrect. The cpu of newer netbooks are NOT slow…older ones, yes..crazily slow…but newer ones, no. They are low powered and made for lightweight applications such as the internet and word processors, however, newer atom processors are capable of running heavier applications smoothly as well. The graphics chip for netbooks are the same as any other integrated graphics chip in other laptops- and yes, they are weaker than dedicated ones of course but we all know that to get a laptop with a good, dedicated card will cost at least $600 and up. The laptop you listed as a comparison is much newer than my netbook therefore it has an update
and about the audio…let me clarify: I know that the audio is NOTHING compared to a middle or high class laptop, but it is on par with entry laptops and at the size it is, it’s just GREAT how they fit that kind of quality in there
I use InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop, and it’s not like I’ve never used a laptop before guys, I know that they’re stallions and netbooks are pony’s basically. My point is that they’re not as bad as people make them out to be and they are far better in productivity than tablets. Although their performance for high end applications aren’t as good as today’s mainstream laptops, they can still get the job done!< that's my point.

Part of the transition between being a teenager and being a grownup is that you stop being so susceptible to peer pressure. What other people say doesn’t matter to you so much, you tend to decide things for yourself. 8^) If you’re happy with your netbook, you don’t have to justify it to anyone. I don’t have either a netbook or a tablet, but I think I’d rather have a device with a real keyboard! A netbook would be smaller, cheaper, easier to carry around, lighter, etc. Etc. And perfectly adequate for most things. For me ‘most things’ is surfing the net, probably in a Starbucks or something. (Though I do use my laptop sometimes to rip CDs at the library, and you couldn’t do that with a netbook).
There’s an ad for the Google Chromebook on TV every two minutes. I really like that ad. But it makes the Chromebook look like something you get for your toddlers, something a 2 year old would be thrilled to have and use. 8^P Nowhere in the ads do they mention that it’s not a whole computer, it’s only for surfing the web. You can’t play games on it. You can’t listen to music on or watch movies on it unless they’re streaming. You can’t even write a document on it unless the doc is stored on your DropBox account or something. I think that kind of sucks.
OTOH how many portables get 6 hrs of battery time? And the atom dual core is moderately fast, probably more than adequate for most things. And your little netbook is probably 20 times faster than the computers that landed men on the moon in 1969, and maybe 1000 times faster than the computer that broke the German Enigma code in WWII. 8^) Whatever works, I say.
