Meet the $150 Notebook
At $150, I’m not sure you’ll see a mini-notebook cheaper than Craig’s CLP281a. More than today’s answer to netbooks, it is an alternate way to put a small, but powerful computer in the hands of students without breaking the budget. The CLP281a combines a 7-inch 800 by 480 screen with a 1.3GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of storage space, which can be augmented with up to a 32GB SD card for extra storage space. It comes with 802.11n WiFi as well as a wired LAN port, three USB 2.0 ports and a Web cam. But it takes a different route when it comes to software because this mini-notebook uses the latest Android 4.0 operating system and apps.
