Get A Compaq Mini 110c From Sprint For 99 Cents

Compaq Mini 110c

Though AT&T made headlines by offering a $50 netbook at some Atlanta stores, Best Buy and Sprint are turning up the heat a notch by offering the Compaq HP Mini 110c netbook for a mere 99 cents with the purchase of a two-year data contract.

The netbook costs $389 without the plan, and Verizon charges $199 for its comparable netbook. However, Sprint and Best Buy plan to make money from the $60/month contract. That’s $1,440 over two years! It’s looking like Sprint is depending on netbook consumers being bad at math.

The specs of the Compaq Mini 110x-1040DX is pretty standard, with a 1.6 GHz Atom, 1 GB of RAM and a 3-cell battery. Other features include a “built-in camera and microphone, 92 percent-size keyboard, 3 USB ports, a 5-in-1 card reader and Intel GMA 950 graphics.”
