Thinking about getting a netbook, but don't know where to start? We take a look at 10 of the most popular netbooks out right now.

Acer Aspire One D250

While we said in our review that we wouldn't rush to recommend the Aspire One D250, it deserves its place here for those who are looking for something new and different and the D250 offers both in the guise of dual-boot between the still hot Windows 7 and Google's Android.

This feature makes it unique in the market. There's also a very pleasant 10.1in LED backlit screen. With a six-cell battery now fitted as standard, the otherwise run-of-the-mill netbook has enough staying power to make it worth considering, especially at the price.

Acer Ferrari One 200 399

If the affordably-priced Acer D250 is a Ford', this Acer is priced like a Ferrari, so it's lucky that it is one then.

There's no good reason for the Ferrari One 200 to exist, except for the fact that it's fun. It's draped in fantastic red paint and abounds with slightly cheesy touches such as large side vents and tyre effect rubber stands that are sure to put a smile on your face.

It's also blessed with some intriguing tech such as an XGP port, while its Athlon X2 dual-core processor and 2GB of RAM help it to the top of our netbook performance charts.

In our last netbook round, up we went with the Asus 1008HA Seashell for its smooth looks and great screen, but this time we're more swayed by the affordability of this back-to-basics netbook.

Smooth curves and great looks still abound on the 1008HA, but it's still a sturdy affair.
