As far I understand, A Notebook and a Laptop are pretty much the same thing. A Laptop (by the seller's viewpoint anyways) would be anything that tends to be over 1500, and probley has some niffy parts into them such as Mini-PCIE video card.
Notebooks are cheaper, yet almost clones of a Laptops, they simply meant as Word prosessing or simple media files. This tend to be around the 750-1250 mark for price range. They still have massive hard drives like 300-400G yet not as powerful as Laptops.
Netbooks are mini notebooks, from 350-650. Netbooks are genereally the same as notebook with the side track that they do not offer alot of space.
These are, by no means, a standard. Stores will use other buzzword and I am using the ones only present to me from Bestbuy in Montreal,Quebec. If your looking for something to play Videogames, go with a Laptop. If your want something to check your e-mail on the go? Netbook.
