Just wondering, with all the money you spend on apps, would it not be cheaper to carry a netbook with a dongle around? ^_^


Senior Member
Are you saying a netbook can play Super Monkey Ball 2? Minigore? Monopoly? Tetris?

And calls as well? And texts? And is run on an OS without viruses? And is good looking? And has a good battery life?

I didn't say anything of a sort, I simply asked if the netbook & dongle would be a CHEAPER option for the App side of things.

I then queried your comment about them not playing games as I know they can.


Senior Member
I queried them back, because they may play games but not retro games or games dependant on an accelaromator (sp.?)

probaby wouldn't be cheaper because all the apps I bought probably go to £100 over 6 months but a netbook is way more expensive. :)

it's all lighthearted not meant to slag yo face off yo.

As the hardware is better than that of alot of pre 2000 PC's they would run most pre 2000 games quite happily, which covers most things retro. I can't imagine the Iphone has any games that a new netbook couldnt physically run.

Fair enough, just brought lots of stuff into the conversation that wasn't important. As you can imagine I have a phone to do all the other stuff, I was just wondering on costs for a netbook/dongle compared to that of buying apps / and paying for extra on a contract.

The iPhone is still affordable, and I don't mind spending a good amount of money if it's something I appreciate more.

Netbooks are maybe £300+ and I spent £87 on iPhone and £35/m on calls, texts, unltd Internet and covering the phone cost.

To me that sounds better :)

plus netbooks can't play the majority of the games I have, purely because the netbook doesn't notice when you tilt it...!

Cat Piano is a piano with different cat voices in different notes of one octave.

Scares the sh*t out of cats.

Is fun.
