Once upon a time, you could buy a cheap netbook for well under $400, but you got a really slow one. Chapter Two: Netbook makers made them better, but they charged about as much as full-size notebooks. A strong all-around netbook, this Aspire is one of the best media-focused models on the market. It's speedy for the price, and the excellent display works well with 720p video.

While it may feel like Netbooks have dropped off the face of the earth in the post-iPad era, inexpensive 10- and 11-inch laptops still lurk out there, although they're changing with the times. The Acer Aspire One 722-BZ608 is a budget-priced 11-inch laptop that's more powerful than a Netbook, but not as fast as some higher-priced 11-inch alternatives.
