Thanks for the help everyone. My computer power port was busted and have decided to fix it at a reasonable price.

Hi Jimmy,
There is sure a lot of confusion around laptop, notebook and netbook.
What is a netbook?
I presume if it runs OpenBook it must also run JAWS?

Open Book will run on a net book. I've been using one for quite a while a
long with JAWS. It can be slow at times. Mine has been faithful for sure,
but with the cost of laptops these days I don't know if I'd would buy
another one.

I've never used a Netbook with Open Book. I have used one with JAWS,
although it was an older XP Netbook. It worked fine, but it was slow.
The biggest drawback to most netbooks is that they are low on memory, and
they're upgradeable but it's not always easy.

I would see a Netbook as more of a stopgap measure than a long-term
solution. I sort of abandoned mine when it wouldn't run the tax website I
needed to do my work.
