About This Pack

"Finding software for netbooks can present challenges due to limited hard drive space, processor power, RAM, and screen real-estate. That doesn't mean you have to do without essential programs. The apps below cover all the bases -- entertainment, productivity, security, and communication -- without compromising on performance or usability. Best of all, they're free!" -- Joanna Stern, Laptop Mag


Editing & Copywriting
Efficiency & Productivity
Graphic Design


  • Title
    Owner Notes
  • Laptop Mag: "Digsby lets you log in and chat via AOL Instant Messenger, Facebook Chat, Google Talk, ICQ, Jabber, Windows Live Messenger, and Yahoo Messenger in one centralized window."
  • from GigaOM: "I am used to keeping my computers synced via Dropbox. I set up folders for each month and every day of the month. This allows me to keep files — photos, videos and random notes — in sync."
  • Laptop Mag: "Now Gmail users can access their messages and attachments, even without a Wi-Fi connection, through Gmail Offline. "
  • Laptop Mag: "Launchy is a lightweight application that allows you to type the file or application you are looking for in a small, skinnable command-line widget on your Desktop. "
  • Laptop Mag: "A high-end photo-editing program like Adobe Photoshop simply won’t run smoothly on today’s netbook. But Paint.Net can get the job done—for free. "
  • GigaOM: "I grabbed the latest version of VLC for video playback of files. "
