I am looking for either a small laptop or netbook. It would only be used to run Quicken and Turbo Tax. It would only be used online for updates and filing taxes. Suggestions please..

Thanks,
Phil

Hello Phil and welcome to the forum!

If you get a netbook how are you going to install Quicken and Turbo Tax as they do not have cdrom drives?
You would have to buy an external cdrom to install anything.

Personally I would get a laptop and stay away from the netbooks for that exact reason.
Plus the display is way too small
In the beginning there was the command line.
