Default Android Tablet vs Netbook?

I have an android phone and I love it. my wife is asking about getting an IPAD and I convinced her to get an android tablet instead.

but now i'm thinking, why spend $500 or more on a tablet when she can get one of those netbook mini laptop computer for half that?

what's the difference? is it just the operating system? if so, is there a way to wipe out Windows and put Android OS on a netbook, so she can get all the apps?

Yes, you can. There is a project called something like X86 Android, try searching for it. There is a live CD for it, I think..... Have fun running Android without touch screen.
