Are you wondering why a new model Kindle (such as the Kindle 2 or Kindle DX) is better than a cheap netbook? Someone on Yahoo Answers does and posed this very question to the masses. I thought this was an excellent question to answer here on the blog.
So below is my response: “6 Reasons A New Model Kindle Is Better Than A Cheap Netbook”.
- Smaller and Lighter – whether you get the Kindle 2 or Kindle DX either one will be smaller and lighter than a netbook. Even the 10 inch models.
- Free Internet – the Kindles come with free access to the 3G network, via either Sprint or ATT. No monthly charges of any kind.
- Better Battery Life – because the Amazon Kindle uses e-ink technology less power is used, and on average a Kindle will last you about four days on a single charge. Pretty sweet!
- Easier On The Eyes Screen – it’s been said that the e-ink screen is much easier on the eyes, than the constant “flickering” of a pc screen.
- Price – with the recent price slash of the Wireless Kindle, they just got cheaper than a cheap netbook. Most 10 inch netbooks still hover around $299.
- Your turn? – What reasons can you add to the equation, weigh in below in the comment area.
