So an older refurb?

You'll have to use Ebay and settle for older units. At that price I'd forget the Dell and shop netbooks at walmart.

Dell netbook

Hi there,

There aren't many laptops in that price range unless you get a refurbished one, like Bob suggested. You should check out the Dell Inspiron Mini 10. It's a great 10" netbook for $349.

What do you think?

Cheers,

If you looking for a dell netbook than have a look at Dell Inspiron Mini.
the battery is built in, not sticking way out like other net book brands.get around 11 hours on a full charge.It has a very solid structure, far different than many others netbooks that have a plastic body. Design is nice, it's a pretty.
It has 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 Processor and 250gb hard disk.The webcam quality is sub-par compared to most full-sized notebooks, but still a decent quality for netbook webcams.

The Dell Mini 1012 features the Intel Atom N450, a 64-bit single-core processor supporting 2GB max of DDR2-667 RAM. It does support Hyper Threading though, meaning minor multitasking is possible
