How did I get into netbook gaming? It isn’t much of a secret. I was always drawn towards the world of MMORPG’s and FPS Online RTS games. The thought of playing a computer game on a netbook brought me excitement and young possibility. I might be able to run some of these games myself in the future, maybe even make a living out of it.
netbook games – theibilities!
What is netbook gaming all about? First, let’s start off by explaining what exactly a netbook is. A netbook is a type of portable computer. It runs on standard PCs and most laptops. It is a light weight system usually weighing in around 11 to 14 pounds. It uses a VGA (Quick n ViewingGA Graphics) Screen with 256 colors and 16:9 widescreen ratio. As you can see, a netbook can watch movies, play MMORPG’s (Massive multi-player online role-playing games), surf the web, and even act as a complete computer. You’d probably have more of a hard time figuring out what a netbook gaming console from Valve Software consists of.
Now that we have that out of the way, we’ll discuss the products and services provided by the top three netbook gaming manufacturers.
I have tried and tested only one major auction site for my netbook needs: netamps.com. It’s a fairly clean interface. It’s got a very friendly user interface that even those who may be new to the host interface may understand and be comfortable with. I also tried netbook support and the feedback I received was very positive. The rep asked me to check out the installer provided for the game I was playing. It was very user friendly and install was easy. I was playing non-stop for about an hour before the dreaded Red Ring of Death (RRoD) appeared. I was the top ranked player in my division (fighter) and it was a great time. I haven’t played a netbook game like netamps.com before so it was a good learning experience.
My experience of netbook gaming is limited to what I’ve seen at netamps. But judging by the advertisements and the strange looking laptops, I’m sure there are quite a few surprises out there. As the Nintendo DSi and Sony PSP are showing, there’s a whole new set of gaming options. I’m sure we’ll see even more netbooks getting released in the future, both affordable and affordable.
I bought my netbook after a few months of learning and testing firmware on my old HP laptop. It was expensive, but it was a netbook after all. I had no idea what to do with it, but I figured I’d give it a shot. I was surprised at how well it ran. So the first thing I did was buy a second computer. This second computer was aSony Yoga 3screen fixed. Even though it was a netbook, it acted like a ridiculously overpriced laptop. Goodness. So I started learning how to fix netbooks on the fly. It’s fun. Some of the videos on YouTube are incredible. It’s nice to have options with regards to fixing netbooks. I’m sure I’ve read better tutorials out there, but I found these to be very knowledgeable and well put together. Some were even from the Microsoft website. Buying a second computer didn’t stop me from learning how to fix netbooks. How many can say they’ve actually used a tutorial to fix anything? Once you learn how to fix something, you’re learning how to use it. These tutorials were so easy to follow, that I could make any mistake and almost guarantee I wouldn’t have a problem with it in the future. If I didn’t care about a $200 Thinkpad, I would’ve taken forever to learn how to fix my netbook, why I was even surprised that it didn’t freeze or stop working.
Now that I’ve fixed my netbook on my own (productively of course), I’ve learned two things:
- There are a lot of inexperienced internet strangers who think that they need to be paid to “Fix your netbook problem.” These are absolutely out of touch. Fixing your netbook is, first and foremost, a way to spare yourself both time and money. It isn’t complicated, nor is it hard. It generally takes anywhere from two to five minutes to fix your netbook and be able to get back to gaming. Just know that if you’re not a tech newbie, you probably wouldn’t have any issues at all. The reason that I, in the end, couldn’t figure out how to fix my netbook was because I didn’t take the time to read the tutorials first, which I did after my success.
