Sylvania Meso netbook

It will probably be months or years before we start to see ultrabooks for less than $600, but if you’re just looking for an ultraportable laptop with a little more oomph than a typical netbook, Amazon is selling the Samsung NP300 11.6 notebook for under $500 today.

You can also pick up an Acer Aspire S3 13.3 inch ultrabook for a pretty good price right now, and if you’re looking for something a *lot* cheaper, there are some great deals on older (and in some cases used) netbooks in today’s roundup of the best deals on mobile tech.

You can find more bargains in our daily deals section.
