Yeah Jane, netbook is best choice for travelling purpose. Definitely, it is cheaper and easy to handle rather than its battery backup is 5 to 6 hours on average, without recharging the batteries through an external source. This is approximately 3 times longer than laptop battery backup. So, I strongly recommend you to buy a branded notebook.
