I have a 15"6 Acer Aspire. It has a 500gb hard drive and 2gb of ram but it's upgradable to 8. It also has a DVD rom drive and inbuilt wireless so u can use it with your wi-fi Internet. It cost me $450 from **** smith electronics
The only thing I have noticed about the netbooks is that they don't have the DVD rom drives and most don't have the unbuilt wireless.

I don't think netbooks are worth it though considering you can buy an actual laptop for not much more these days.

Ok I'm thinking I'd rather a notebook then a NetBook. But still want to spend under $500. I definitely want a cd part, USB part, be small and light and wireless modem as I'll have wifi with my Internet plan at home. I'll go shopping for one soon, any brands I should steer clear off? Thanks for everyone's help

Personally i would steer clear of Acer at all cost. My acer PC had to be completely rebuilt within the first 6 months of warranty. It was constantly going back even after that to have bits and pieces replaced Out of warranty i had it rebuilt again and eventually just gave up on it.
The first netbook i bought was an acer as well. The motherboard died pretty early on. It would have cost more to replace the motherboard then it would have to buy a new netbook.
Plenty of people have told me to steer clear of acer as the above examples are apparently quite common.

I gotta say I love acer, I still have the one I bought in 2005 and works perfectly. I just bought a new one earlier this year and I was about $450 and it's amazing :-)
But, like with everything, ppl have their fave brands :-)

Look up msy.com.au
They have stores all over Australia. They are the cheapest place to buy computers and parts. They have several notebooks for under $500
