Acer Netbook for under $200!

Acer Netbook for $199

UPDATE: All good things must end, and this deal is dead as a doorknob! I got mine, did you get yours?

I realize I’ve had some substantial slackage of late, and for that I apologize. But on the bright side, today I’ve got a fantastic deal you should check out, and I just ordered one myself. TigerDirect is offering a refurbished Acer Aspire One Netbook for $199 with $1.99 shipping. I managed to get out the door for just over $201. The thing that sold me on it was that when I went to google reviews for it, I found that NotebookReview gave it very high marks and that, surprisingly to me, it also appears to be one of the best performing netbooks on the market compared to a bunch of others. That’ll all change once the nVidia ION platform launches, of course, but let’s face it, those will probably be twice the price for awhile, especially if their performance metrics are even close to what nVidia is claiming.

Interestingly, I also found a Youtube video demonstrating that this netbook will run Mac OSX, which I find surprising. I’ve also found that with a little work you can get the system to run Vista (ugh, why bother with that turd?), Windows 7 RC1, or even Ubuntu Linux if that’s your flavor. Pretty cool!
