Here’s just about the least expensive way to get into a Windows-based netbook at the moment. Geeks.com is selling refurbished Eee PCs in black or white for $299. This is the 4G 701 model, which has a 4GB solid state drive, 512MB of RAM, and Windows XP. Again, they’re refurbished, but you’ll get a 90-day warranty and a low, low price.
You can also get a refurbished Linux version for only $249.
