Black Friday is expected to bring a slew of supremely cheap netbook deals to the forefront of many retail windows. The latest example of that trend is Delstar’s DS 700 netbook, selling for $120 on KMart after Thanksgiving this year.
The machine is made by Chinese developer Delstar and comes with a 7-inch screen, Windows CE, and an ARM CPU. Windows CE is an unpopular choice for netbooks but in this case it’s keeping prices unbelievably low.
The Delstar DS 700 netbook is a bit underpowered but comes with Internet Explorer, a PDF viewer, and support for Microsoft Office files. This could mean the Microsoft Office Mobile package or something similar, considering that Delstar has mentioned a “document creator,” “spreadsheet creator,” “presentation creator,” and “media player”.
Here are the specs from WindowsforDevices:
- Processor — 400MHz Samsung SoC
- Memory — 128MB of RAM and 2GB of flash storage
- Display — Seven-inch screen with 800 x 480 pixel resolution
- Expansion — SD slot
- LAN — 10/100 Ethernet
- WLAN — 802.11b/g
- 3 x USB 2.0
- Microphone jack
- Headphone jack
- Battery — Three-cell, lasts for three hours
- Dimensions — 9.75 x 6.5 x 2 inches
- Weight, including battery — under 2 pounds
It’s November, ladies and gentlemen, and you know what that means: it’s time to count down to Black Friday!
Huliq recently included netbooks on its list of what it expects to be the most popular items this Black Friday, and has uncovered some interesting hints about what we could expect this shopping season.
Word has it that a 9″ Linux netbook will be available for an insane $129 this year. This sounds like it could come in the form of a refurbished Dell Mini 9 or Eee PC 900 series netbook, depending on who’s doing the selling.
Another popular offering could be the 15.4″ Compaq CQ-139WM, which isn’t a netbook but runs a 160 GB HDD and 2 GB of RAM for only $298.
Office Max’s Black Friday ad was posted but has mysteriously disappeared. It’s rumored that within this ad, the Acer Aspire One netbook was priced at less than $150 a pop. This is quite a deal, considering this netbook normally retails for nearly $150 more.
If you’re interested, keep on the lookout for any developments – and of course we’ll keep you posted. In the meanwhile, feel free to read one of our previous articles to learn more about the Acer Aspire One netbook. And if you hear any other awesome netbook deals, feel free to let us know.
Dell has decided to stick with the price drop it tested on Black Friday. The Mini-9 netbook retailed for $299, and is still available for that price.
The Mini 9 is available in Obsidian Black or Alpine White, or a few other colors for an additional cost. The Mini 9 runs Ubuntu Linux and has 512 MB RAM, a 4 GB SSD, and an 8.9″ LED. For an extra $35 you can upgrade the solid state drive to 8 GB – a choice we recommend.
Though the Mini-12 is already on the market, the Mini-9 is still making news. We’ve covered it before but the netbook just keeps on popping up – something to be expected from such a successful machine. Reviewers have loaded praise on the netbook, particularly noting its excellent battery life which distinguishes it from such competitors as the Acer Aspire One or MSI Wind.
Asustek Computer is busting out new models. The 1002HA, which we covered in our November 24th article, is not the only new netbook release to grace the shelves of stores in the new future: ASUS has announced another frighteningly cheap netbook, sure to take a massive slice of the consumer pie in the near future.
The new Eee PC, which has been available in Taipei under the name ‘Surf’, should cost a slim $200. It will be available in the US in the first quarter of next year.
This low-cost version of the immensely popular Eee PC that started the netbook craze shows ASUS is going back to roots – not a bad idea, considering the buzz they got going early in the history of netbooks.
The ‘Surf’ netbook has a small 7-inch LCD screen, an Intel Celeron M processor, and ran an operating system from Linux. Other more expensive Eee PCs have perhaps overshadowed this little guy, but analysts expect US consumers to devour it with fervor.
Other Eee PCs with 9 or 10 inch screens running the Intel Atom are the norm these days, but cost far more – perhaps even doubling the cost of this cheap new netbook. While 7-inch netbooks are is a swiftly decreasing section of the market, hopes are high for the new Eee PC.
It is doubtful whether the International Consumer Electronics Show in LA will even feature the Eee PC, so for now all we’ve got is speculation. Come first quarter next year, however, all our questions will be answered.
Happy Black Friday and tune in here soon for daily netbook news.
Thanksgiving is here, though given the amount of crazy deals to be offered tomorrow, it might more properly be named ‘Black Friday’s Eve.’
Netbooks are going to be flying off the shelves this year, with some amazingly cheap offers on classic netbooks, as well as some new ones. With the slew of recent new netbook releases on everyone’s mind, tonight and tomorrow will be big for the industry. With no further ado, check out these amazing Black Friday netbook deals, coming to a retailer near you.
The Asus Eee PC 900a will be offered at Best Buy for $299, the cheapest it’s been since its original release. In case you’ve forgotten, the 8.9″ XP-running netbook hit stores at $550 back in the day. Though unconfirmed, some analysts (such as one on ComputerWorld Blogs) suspect the Asus Eee PC 1000 may also be going for about $399.
As part of a new recent trend towards accessibility and efficiency, Dell has announced that its Inspiron Mini-9 will be available with 3G broadband.
CEO Michael Dell confirmed the company’s intentions to sign up more wireless providers for its new netbooks, though he did not specify when.
For a mere $125, Mini-9 netbooks in the United States will be set up to feature WWAN (Wireless Wide Area Network). However, that’s not the best part: AT&T is offering a $120 rebate on it if you sign a two-year contract!
While exciting, the new offer is only going to be available on the newer, XP-running versions of the Mini-9.
The new announcements aren’t only coming from Dell; Taiwanese computer company Acer has some things to say as well. Acer, producer of the well known Acer Aspire One A110, had a big role in getting the netbook ball rolling in the tech industry.
Acer’s Scott Lin announced that the netbooks of the company are expected to get bigger and cheaper in 2009. The new Aspire One will take on a 10″ form around February or March of the coming year, a departure from the earlier Aspire One which only measured in at 8.9 inches. Analysts have suggested this is a move to try to take up more space in the market which, though in a sense started by Acer, is now owned by the Dell Mini netbooks, the Eee PC, and MSI’s Wind.
As Black Friday draws closer, new netbook announcements seem to be coming out at light speed. We’re definitely pumped to see what else is coming soon.
ASUS is back at it with a brand new netbook release on the way: the aesthetically pleasing ASUS Eee 1002HA.
Remember when, in our November 22nd article, we wondered if ASUS would be releasing anything to compete with MSI’s new Wind U120? The answer has been delivered in full force, the way ASUS likes to do it.
Don’t freak out yet – this is just a pre-production model. However, ASUS has recently been giving tech blogs and magazines a taste of the new machine, just to whet our appetites. The 1002HA is a solid 10-inches, featuring what looks like the trackpad of the Eee PC S101 as well as the keyboard of the 100H.
Seen by many as a kind of hybrid of the two laptops, it looks to put the best of both worlds onto one new machine sure to please consumers once it’s released.
It should run the 1.6 GHz Intel Atom with 1GB of RAM and a 160 GB hard drive. Interestingly, however, the battery is a mere two cell – though ASUS assures skeptics that it should offer a full five hours of life. This claim sounds a little suspicious, but we’ll believe it for now; ASUS has impressed the tech world before when it, along with rival MSI, started the netbook boom earlier this year with the original Eee PC.
Unfortunately, the ASUS 1002HA won’t be out in time for Black Friday, but it will hit stores on December 1st for $499. Get pumped – we sure are.
