Gorgeous Dell Netbook Only $299.99 @ Best Buy Canada!

I don’t usually post many techie deals, but this one is surely worth a mention. Best Buy Canada are offering

Taking a look at the netbook specification, here are the main things worth a mention:

  • Hard Drive: 8GB Solid State Drive
  • Processor: 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Screen Size: 8.9"
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home

Of course it’s not an amazing spec, but it’s great for the money. If you were looking for a little portable computer for travelling, or even one for work or university, this netbook is ideal. It would be perfect for basic office applications, internet browsing, etc.

My friend recently got a little 8” netbook. It’s so cute! I lug around a 14” laptop when I’m travelling, and these little netbooks just make it look like a big black brick!

    hi, ive heard other users complainning that netbook is too slow when opening word doc or web pages. How about this one? I personally think 1G for windows xp is fine... And i dont quite understand what a "Solid State Drive" means? Is it better or faster than those regular ones? ps. How's the price now? Thanks a lot

    The deal seems to be over now rika. For that kind of money, I wouldn't expect to be getting a super-fast machine - when it comes to processing speed in computers - you pay for what you get, in my opinion. As for the solid state drive, they are supposed to be better. They don't have a spinning disc like current hard drives, no moving parts in a solid state drive, so less prone to failure. I don't know if that means faster though!

What do you think?
