There is no much difference between a laptop and a notebook pc. One of the notable differences between the two is that a notebook is smaller than a normal laptop. Other notebooks do not have CD/DVD ROMS whereas the laptops have the ROMS.
I don't think you can put a disc into a notebook. It'll only accept USB. Also can make a dp photo which is ridiculous. It's solely for the purpose of making journal entries etc whereas laptops you can use very multi purpose and burn CDs etc. hope this helps
