Birthday present

I was thinking about giving my dad a netbook for his birthday like the one in the link below. My dad uses computers for pretty much only internet surfing and watching movies online. I heard netbooks were bad for watching hd videos. Is it true? Does it lag when connected to a hdtv through an hdmi cable?

nobody has a netbook?

I don’t for one…my lappy is just too cool.

A netbook usually has half the specs a laptop has.
I once tried watching a video and pulled my hair out.
