    I am looking at a new netbook and most have the W7 Starter OS. I have not read much about this " Starter " so basically what can be processed with this OS.

    My thoughts about this is you could basically do browsing, email and things of this nature and nothing more.

    Thanks

    Its an entry level Operating System, but you can install and run most programs you need.

    This will give you two strikes toward a working system. They are IMO the last type of machine I would spend any money on.

    Remember that a NetBook does not come with a CD/DVD readr/burner.
