Since the 10-inch Aspire One is poised to be the new standard, it's a good time to pick up the 8.9-inch model on the cheap.
Buy.com has a "sapphire blue" Aspire One available for $260. The system is configured with an Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, 8.9" screen, 1GB RAM, 16GB SSD, Webcam, Wi-Fi, and Windows XP Home. It's a very typical netbook, and the next Aspire One isn't slated to be worlds better. [Buy via CrunchGear]
