Score an Aspire One Netbook for $239.99 shipped

Here's your chance to pick up one of the top-rated Netbooks for a song, offered at Newegg. Just make sure that you can live with the Linux operating system.

It's not quite as compelling as the $178 Dell Mini 9 from last week , but it's definitely a better deal overall: Newegg has the Acer Aspire One Netbook for $239.99 shipped. It's new, not a refurb, and there are no rebates.

The Aspire One is widely regarded as one of the best Netbooks on the market. My experience with it bears this out; check out my Netbook Diaries, if you haven't already.

This particular model comes with the 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 16GB solid-state drive, a Webcam, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi connectivity, and the Linpus Linux Lite operating system.

Need more storage? Double up with a memory card: Newegg conveniently sells a 16GB SD card for just $24.99.

Because this is a new machine, it comes with a full, one-year warranty. And at this price, the Aspire One is venturing dangerously close to impulse buy territory. Agree? Disagree? I'll hear arguments in the Comments section below.

Meanwhile, act fast: I'm betting that these will sell out before the day, if not the morning, is over.
