    Want to buy a netbook but dont know if it can be used to play basic online games? As in the ones from Zylom.com
    Does anyone know if they would play, and if so what minimum specification would be required to run them?

    Generally speaking Netbooks are designed for light use as the processors are less powerful than laptops, they have less RAM, don't have video cards and often don't have hard disks.

    Netbooks are simply glorified mobile phones.

    Don't expect too much.

    Ahh damn. Im not wanting that much from it ... Zylom games look pretty simple, I was hoping a Netbook would manage it as I doubt it would be too much strain on the processor.

    If you are on about simple flash games, then it should be fine.

    Very simple games while not doing anything else could be okay. But as a rule, get something decent, there are plenty of cheap laptops. If its size thats the issue, maybe get a netbook with the best processor/ram.. but you're looking at more costly than a cheap laptop.
