There’s been a lot of talk over the last few days about the death of the netbook. Anyone who’s been keeping an eye on the space probably noticed a while ago that Lenovo, Sony, Dell, and Samsung quietly stopped making new netbooks, and it looks like Acer and Asus have no new models planned.
Instead most companies are focusing on devices with higher profit margins such as ultrabooks and tablets… at least until prices on those devices start to dip to netbook-like prices.
In the meantime if you’re looking for a low-cost, low-power portable notebook you’re in luck. The “death” of the netbook means that you can find some pretty great deals on last year’s models. Geeks.com is selling a few refurbished Windows 7 models for just $200 each.
