Toshiba’s Australian division is offering one of those promotions that only works out to be a good deal if you were already planning on spending money. Here’s how it works. You pick up a Toshiba brand HDTV between December 1st and January 15th, and you can get a free Toshiba Satellite NB100 netbook by registering at the promotion home page.
Only 4000 of the netbooks are available, so the promotion is available on a first come, first served basis. And you’ll need to pick up a 37 inch, 42 inch, or 46 inch LCD TV, so don’t go thinking you can buy a tiny 19 inch set for a few hundred bucks and get a free laptop.
My guess is that Toshiba got a very tiny man to model for the promotion picture, as the Toshiba NB100 measures just 8.9″ x 7.5″ x 1.2″, has an 8.9 inch display, and is overall rather small as laptos go. Either that, or the company really sucks at Photoshop.
