My laptop is giving up the ghost. The screen is cracked ridiculously so I can't see parts of it, and the power cable port is cracked and the battery doesn't charge anymore so everytime I move the cable falls out and my laptop dies. I've been looking at netbooks online as they're in my price range whereas a new laptop isn't so much but I'm wondering how annoying they are with the small screen size and lack of CD drive. I need it to do my uni work on, how on earth do I install office without a CD drive?! Also, would it be impossible to write essays on due to the small screen size? And also to read big journal articles as I'd have to scroll forrrreeeevvvverrr. Or is it really not that bad and something you just get used to? Any recommendations? Thanks!
