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.
As netbooks or nettops are starting to conquer notebook sales charts, the add-on market is slowly, but certaintly – starting to pick up. As storage is one of biggest limitations, memory makers are starting to recognize that there is a large market happening right in front of them. PATRIOT is one of very first companies that is jumping on netbook market with the launch of 32GB and 64GB SSD for netbooks such as ASUS EEE PC. The “Lite Series” are compatible with EEE 900, 900 16G, 900A, 901 and 1000 series. Pricing was of course, unavailable at press time, but availability is as of today.
