Best Buy to sell a $249 notebook this holiday season

best-buyNeed a dirt cheap and somewhat underpowered notebook? Best Buy has you covered with a $249 Acer laptop. Netbook, what?

The exact model will be revealed tomorrow, but at least the key specs have been released today: an Intel Celeron 900 CPU, 2GB of memory, and a 160GB hard drive. Chances are the screen will be around 15-inches too and it will have the standard assortment of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, DVD optical drive, webcam, and a 6-cell battery life. But for $249, who cares. It’s not like your mom is going to do anything but play Farkle on Facebook anyway.
