Dell just launched a 24-hour sale of its netbook, the Mini 9. You can buy this product for paltry $199, making this model first netbook to crack the $200 barrier. Caveat of course, comes in the form of operating system, none other than Ubuntu Linux, enabling Dell to shave off 50 greenbacks.
After seeing this, there is nothing else to say but – computers just became an everyday thing even for non-tech savvy consumers.
There is no reason why grandpa or grandma should not have something as cheap as this, and staying in touch could be much cheaper than it used to… kudos to Dell.
