    Default Netbook?

    Can we use Time4Learning on a netbook? The lessons that I saw all fit within a netbook screen, and I want to make sure that's true throughout the program before we begin.

    From what I understand it does work on a netbook. Maybe others will come along and give a better answer. Sorry not much more help. :^)

    I just got a new netbook,(Friday) and as far as I can tell everything works fine on it. I will tell you though that my daughter, 10, said she is glad I have a netbook, so that she can have the big computer. She complained that everything was "soo small" on the netbook, and that she hated how the mouse worked. But as far as will T4L work on a netbook, I have not found anything that doesn't work yet.

    I have an ASUS EEEpc that I need to reinstall windows on for this fall's use, but it works fine on a Netbook, and they keyboard was far better on littler hands than the standard keyboard for my kids.

    My daughter uses a netbook for her kids. She hasn't found any problems.

    As for me and my niece and nephews, netbook is just as good as the desktop and laptop.
    Though we haven't tried t4l, i see no problem on this regard.
    The kids do have fun and they do learn from what i taught them.
    I can just leave them chatting with their mom.
    I see no serious problems at all.

    I have several kids working at various levels on Time4Learning. They each have different brands of netbooks (depending on what was on sale at the time! ) We have yet to come across a lesson that doesn't run on their netbooks.

    They do find the touchpad frustrating to use with some of the drag-and-drop activities, so I've purchased wireless mice for them.

    I should dig out my netbook and give it a try! I used to use it for work.
