Clearance LaptopsLaptops, notebooks and netbooks are frequently sold off at discounted clearance prices over the internet to make way for newer models, as the world of technology progresses rapidly. Note that the words "laptop" and "notebook" are interchangeable; however, a "netbook" is typically a smaller and lighter more portable version of a laptop, typically without an optical drive such as a dvd writer to save space, and often a less powerful processor or graphics card. Netbooks are primarily used for internet access, email and word processing; functions that can be handled easily without a more powerful processor. Netbooks are also often cheaper than laptops. Lines of distinction between the different types of laptop computer are becoming harder to define; for example, some there is a new range of laptops that has recently been launched called "Ultra-thin Laptops" which are both light and thin.

Some of the best known manufacturers of laptop computers including Dell, HP, ASUS, Acer, Lenovo, Compaq, Sony and Samsung.
