What's wrong with having it all? I mean, AT&T already offers tv and home internet, why not this? If they have the capabilities, go for it.

It depends on your Market Area. ATT does not support nationwide service all over for home internet and TV. Same with Verizon. Only in certain market areas. California is a good example, where Verizon controls Southern California and is a local provider as well as offer TV and internet services, where in Northern California it's ATT that offers those services. If you live in California, you see commericals for both companies all the time but depending on where you live in the state it's only one or the other.

because att is more than just a wireless company. I bet you didnt know that verizons parent company Verizon Communications offers Broadband home internet and phone service in parts of the company not to mention has a business segment called Verizon Business.

This is true however in this economy trying to sell a laptop will be pretty hard considering its probably not on the top hundred things for most people to buy

What kind of netbooks are they for $49.99. I'm even cheap decent mini netbooks are a couple hundred or more. Is there going to be barely any memory on them and be uselss or what?

They're probably subsidized seeing how you have to sign up for their broadband services

I wonder if it's only supporting the Windows version of the Dell mini-9, and not the Ubuntu version... and I've been trying to confirm that you can just do the mobile internet plan instead of having to do the plan that combines mobile internet (with a lower monthly cap) and DSL (which I don't need).
