In the market for a cheap netbook? Then the HP Mini 110 might be for you — depending on your definition of the word cheap. Verizon Wireless is offering the Mini 110 for just $29.99. But there’s a catch: You have to sign up for a 2 year service contract at $60/month to get that price.
In other words, over the course of the contract, the netbook will run you $1470. If you’re in the market for a 3G enabled netbook that can connect to Verizon’s wireless broadband network from virtually anywhere, that’s not a bad deal. But if you just want a WiFi capable netbook you can certainly do a lot better.
