In November and during Black Friday you could find netbooks for around or under $200. In December I did not come across a deal close to $200 until today. Best Buy offers in their Deal of the Day the Deep Red Asus Eee PC 1005HAB for $229.99.
Only the Deep Red 1005HAB is on sale for this price. The black and blue models sell for $329.99 on Best Buy.
The Asus Eee PC 1005HAB is the budget model in the Asus 1005HA netbook line.
Features include Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB RAM, 10.1-inch WXGA LED-backlit screen, Wi-fi, 1.3MP camera, 160GB HDD and 3-cell battery.
The battery is where you make the biggest compromise compared, for instance, to the top Asus Eee PC 1005HA netbook model that offers 10.5 hours compared to the 3 hours you get with this netbook.
Get the Best Buy netbook bargain deal before it is out of stock here.
