The bottom line is one laptop may fare better than another. Same for netbooks. If it is a REAL ISSUE you can always buy some wifi usb dongle and CANTENNA?
I'm shopping for a netbook and wonder if netbooks have degraded wireless LAN connectivity compared to laptops.
I would think that they are comparable until I read a review that said that particular netbook model was good because it could connect up to 50 feet.
That raised a flag for me because my laptop is fine in my current environment, but a 50 foot range might be problematic if a netbook has worse connectivity performance.
I searched and didn't find any mention that netbooks are any different as a class compared to laptops. (I can appreciate that there are individual differences, of course.)
Any one have an opinion or experience on this topic? It's a pretty important data point in my buying decision.
