Best Buy and Sprint have teamed up to offer a Compaq-branded HP Mini 110c netbook for only 99 cents when you sign a two-year data contract.
Normally, this netbook costs $389 at Best Buy, without a contract, and buying a similar model with Verizon (or a comparable one from AT&T) would set you back $199. So 99 cents is quite a bargain if you don’t mind being contracted. The contract, which costs $60 per month, $720 per year, or $1,440 over the life of the contract.
The Compaq Mini 110c-1040DX offers a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of memory and a tiny three-cell battery. It weighs about 2.6 lbs. and is 1.3 in. thick, and it has a built-in camera and microphone, 92 percent-size keyboard, 3 USB ports, a 5-in-1 card reader and Intel GMA 950 graphics.
