My husband just does web searches and sometimes checks emails. Can you check email with notebooks. Would a notebook be good for these two things? We are older and I have no idea what half the new stuff is or what it will do. I thought a notebook would be cheaper than a laptop and serve the same purpose. Thanks for your help..Any notebooks best?? if that is a good option.Samsung Chromebook (Wi-Fi, 11.6-Inch)

a notebook is just another brand name for laptop. they do the same thing and cost the same for the basic models.if he's just checking email and web surfing, just go to wal-mart and get the cheapest model they have. you can get one from $150-$200. but whatever you get make sure it has at least 4gb of memory and at least a 320 hard drive. and get a good antivirus software.if you want something handheld get a kindle fire hd or nook hd. they are $200. they let you watch video check emails and read books. kindle is buy amazon. and nook is by barnes and nobles. they have no internal memory for storage.

A "Chromebook" literally only runs one single program-the Chrome web browser. If you want to run any other programs (even other web browsers) or store things like photos and documents on your own computer (under your own control), a "Chromebook" would be a terrible choice. If for some reason you have to have one, HP's new model at least has a decent sized 14" display.

Do you mean real Outlook, the program? Or Outlook the web based email service? The latter should run okay in Chrome (which again, is literally the only program "Chromebooks" run). The actual Outlook program however won't run on a Chromebook.
