I want to get a laptop or notebook for my college kid, I just don't want to break the bank and I know if I ask his advise, I'll pay through the roof not knowing whether I've made the best decision - but he'll insist its the right decision - doesn't matter to me if it is second hand - what would people recommend?

I looked it up.

Whats the difference between a netbook, a notebook, and an Ipad?

Yep, that looks pretty suitable to me, and a good price.  Don't get him a netbook - they are such a nuisance and he'll probably get frustrated with their limited capability, even though they are probably more convenient in terms of actual size.  I have to use both and I am often tempted to throw the netbooks at the people who make me use them  eek

Netbook is ok if you want to just write mebbe and occasionally surf, and need a teeny thing to fit in your man bag. Any more than that, one like above
