    Do u mean take the computer back to the state of when u first bought it? U can format ur drives and then u'll need ur recovery cd and reinstall ur os is that what u meant by sbfing a laptop like bringing it back to when u first bought it?

    I wouldn't try it. I don't think RSD Lite will install on tablet.

    Yea should work just the same but since u say mini notebooks they probably just won't be as powerful that is the hardware but the software and all that u can use on it won't differ much unless it requires better hardware such as ram and all

    Netbooks are good for basic computer functions, but DO not expect the speed of a desktop or full function laptop. I have an Asus, and for most purposes it works great. However it will not let me play Rift because the video card is not powerful enough.
