Best Buy offers a Compaq netbook for 99 cents with Sprint activation
It's amazing what a dollar can buy you nowadays – you can treat yourself to something on the dollar menu at your local fast food restaurant. Would you believe that it can even get you a brand spanking new Compaq netbook? Consumer electronics giant Best Buy is offering a special deal in its stores when you purchase the Compaq Mini 110c-1040 DX netbook with Sprint wireless broadband service. Some consumers dish out hundreds and even thousands of dollars for a notebook, but Best Buy is only requiring $0.99 to get yourself a netbook with an Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, 10.1” screen, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive, and an embedded mobile broadband card. You'll be required to sign a two year agreement with Sprint's $60 per month service to qualify for the $0.99 price. No love for Verizon or AT&T unfortunately – you can sign up for either carrier and pay $199.99 for the netbook. Finally, dishing out $389.99 will get you the netbook without any monthly service agreements. Who says a dollar can't buy you anything these days?

Wonder if that same glitch is in the system from the last netbook offer (that you can buy the netbook, cancel the service, and keep the netbook with no additional fees).

Not sure who would ever buy it full price. Here's what I would do....buy it with Sprint for $1. Wait 31 days and call up Sprint to cancel the service; pay the ETF of course...$1 + $200(ETF) + $60(1st month) + $35(act fee) = $296. Still better than $389.99!

Either way it's still a piece. I've tried using a friends netbook and it's frustrating slow. These things are for kids.
