Get a Windows 7 Netbook for $199.99
Posted on Nov 29 2010 06:42 AM by xper in Hardware

It's been ages since I posted a Netbook deal, in part because the entire product category seems to have stagnated, and in part because prices haven't budged in months. In honor of Cyber Monday, Office Depot is budging a little: you can get the MSI Wind L1350-436US 10-inch Netbook (blue) for $199.99 shipped (plus sales tax in some states). This is a new unit, not a refurb, and that's not a post-rebate price. I mention that because it's the rare sub-$200 Netbook that's not refurbished or rebate-saddled.

The 2.4-pound Wind features an Intel Atom N450 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 10.1-inch screen, and a 160GB hard drive. Because it runs Windows 7 Starter, I wouldn't mind seeing another gig of memory here. Thankfully, there's room to pop in a second RAM stick.

Other noteworthy specs include 802.11n Wi-Fi, three USB ports, a 1.3-megapixel Webcam, and a 1-year warranty.

Is this the best Netbook deal I've ever seen? No, but for a mere 200 bucks, you're getting a fully capable, highly portable PC. What's not to like?
