Get a 10-inch Asus Netbook for $249.99

This is a one-day-only deal, and I'll bet my cat it'll sell out before the day is done. That's because this is one seriously well-equipped Netbook--for a seriously low price.

A 10-inch Netbook for $249.99? Act fast: they won't last the day. Woot

Update: Sorry, sports fans, but it's already sold out. Check back later for another deal. Hint: free stuff!

Remember the $279.99 HP Netbook from a couple weeks ago? Here's an even better deal: Woot Sellout has the Asus Eee PC 1000H for just $249.99. Shipping will run you a very reasonable $5.

Because this is a Woot deal, it expires when the clock strikes midnight--and may well sell out before then.

As Netbooks go, this one's pretty loaded. In addition to the 10-inch screen, you get 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Windows XP.

Other perks include a 1.3-megapixel Webcam, Bluetooth, and a keyboard that's only a fraction smaller than a standard laptop's. The 1000H weighs 3 pounds and measures 1.5 inches thick.

Because it's a refurb, the warranty ends after 90 days.

That's the only area where the Asus doesn't exceed the aforementioned HP, which had a smaller hard drive and 802.11g. Of course, it's also $30 less.

Interestingly, Woot was offering the Eee PC with your choice of a six- or four-cell battery, but the former are already sold out. If you want this Netbook, act fast. Really, really fast.
