Poll: Which kind of laptop are you?

Now that the laptop market has been spread thinly with the introduction of netbooks and CULVs, it looks like the regular ones have been placed in the sidelines. Our next poll looks at what people prefer when buying a laptop.

We only have 3 big categories actually:

Yugatech 728x90 Reno7 Series
  • Netbook. This is the most popular category nowadays because of its affordability but it generally lacks the processing power.
  • CULV Notebooks. This recently created category for the thin and light segment offers better computing power yet still inherits almost the same battery performance of netbooks. Only issue is that they cost too much, almost twice the price of netbooks.
  • Regular Laptops. The 13″ to 17″ laptops that carry discreet graphics cards and sport dual core or quad core processors. These are mainly geared towards gamers and processor-intensive users that want a nice, big screen.

So, which one are you? If you own a laptop, which category does it fall among the 3 mentioned above?

I’ve added the poll on the side but you can leave a comment below. I think it’s all about the need and lifestyle but many people really look at the price points.

    Regular, second hand (tpc). Not that fast but gets the job done. Not that light but mobile enough to be carried from A to B. Keyboards and screen size are just right.

    I currently own a netbook although I frequently use the laptop of my sister… the good thing about my netbook is that it really is portable (and Ive replaced its HDD to 320 Gb)… Problema nga lang is that hindi ko siya magamit-gamit sa mga applications na nangangailangan ng proper resolution… Yon lang so far ang issue ko sa netbook ko… Pero, love ko masyado netbook ko… hehehe…

    Real men lug around their 15 inches! LOL

    I love my 15.6 inch Gateway NV5211u laptop. Multi-tasking is cake walk even with just an AMD processor and 4GB memory.

    Full-featured with Windows 7 Home premium only cost me P24,200. I imported it ofcourse.

    I just love its US laptop features. While everybody here in the Phils is dealing with crappy specs available in locally available portables, I got it cheap and the best in its class.

    We plan to import more US laptops. Anyone interested can contact me. Go branded!

    I prefer a regular laptop because I’m a gamer, even though I never actually own one, because I’m a Desktop PC person.

    For now that laptops are evolving I will however get some in the future

    my choice is a netbook.kaso medyo hindi ka masisiyahan sa processor lalo na pag naglalaro ka ng mga apps sa facebook..kaya mas pinili ko iBook G4..mas ayos ang performance ng processor kesa netbook..affordable din..and 12″ ang size kaya portability is there pa din he he he..
