Get a netbook for a buck? Sounds too good to be true.

1dolla-netbookOn the surface, this sounds like an okay deal: buy a Compaq Mini 110c-1040 DX netbook for $1.00, and sign up for mobile broadband with Sprint on a two year contract. Just make sure you don’t go over the limit on your data plan. Where exactly can you get this screaming deal?

It’s a bundle deal from Best Buy. And it varies, depending on what carrier you actually prefer. You can choose Verizon or AT&T instead of Sprint, but expect the cost to go up to $199.99 if you go with one of them. You can also just buy the thing outright for $389.99, which is a better deal if you look at the total price of basic purchase vs. 24 months at $60 for a data plan.
