You can now get a red refurbished ASUS Eee PC 900HDB for only $189.99 at Mwave. The netbook packs a 900 MHz Intel Celeron 353 processor, which loses to the Atom for speed but takes most tasks in stride. Other specs on this 8.9″ netbook include 1 GB of RAM, a 160 GB HDD and Windows XP Home Edition.
Most deals of this caliber will only get you some boring old white netbook, but the deep red shell on this thing is definitely an upside.
This offer is likely to be gone soon, so the warranty lasts only 90 days. You can return it within 30 days but only for a replacement, so take a second to catch your breath before you make a bad decision and buyer’s remorse swallows you whole.
Then again, $60 off the list price is tempting…
This isn’t the first time Dell has involved the Mini 9 netbook in some interesting deals, including the $99 AT&T netbook deal we covered on January 12th.
The model comes in Alpine White or Obsidian black. The machine runs a 1.6 GHz Atom processor, has 512 MB Ram, and comes with a 4 GB SSD drive. That isn’t huge, but at $178 you’re necessarily going to hit the low end. It runs Ubuntu Linux.
CNet’s instructions are concise and useful:
Once you land at the outlet store page, click Outlet Laptops, then Inspiron & Mini Laptops, and then Inspiron Mini. Under Inspiron Mini 9, click Continue, then Check Availability and Prices. In the ginormous list of recertified models that appears, click the Price column to sort low-to-high. You should see the aforementioned Mini 9 models for $209. Add the one you want to your cart, then apply coupon code $C$TXXP1CT3BLC to bring the price down to $177.65.
Amazingly, the refurbished netbook will get the year warranty that new models have.
There have already been reports of the coupon losing and regaining functionality, so get there fast and see what you can do. You may just end up with a super-cheap netbook!
