Customers who buy a Toshiba XV500 series 37-inch, 42-inch or 46-inch LCD will receive an 8.9-inch Toshiba NB100 netbook between now and January 15 2009.

It may not be the first thing you think about — netbooks and TVs — but it's certainly more sensible than promoting a "Full-HD Christmas" by bundling your plasma with a standard-def console.
