While some may think that notebooks are more convenient for everyday use, for doing basic everyday tasks, netbooks are just fine. 10″ screens are ideal for netbooks and Buy.com is currently offering the refurbished 10″ HP Mini 1033CL for $279.99 (including shipping). Here’s the direct link to get on this netbook offer before it’s gone.
This HP Mini has a 10.2″ screen and the typical tech components – a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1 GB of RAM, and a somewhat smaller 60 GB hard drive. It has a webcam too. The Mini runs on Windows XP and weighs in at roughly 2.4 pounds.
Because this netbook is refurbished though, the waranty on it is only for 90 days. Also, the three-celled battery that comes with it isn’t so impressive either, as many existing netbooks have batteries that last for much longer periods of time.
If you’re looking for a standard netbook though, this is a solid choice. It may not be the most high tech netbook out there, but it will no doubt get your job done.
