Well if there’s one thing a devastated economy is good for, it’s price drops. Prices on plenty of goods and services are dropping, gas has dipped well under $3.00 per gallon in many areas… And now you can get your Asus netbook on for less than $300. Well, not really considering taxes take you over $300 but you know what we mean. The Asus Eee PC 900A, which is a 900 with an Atom processor, is now available from Best Buy for a more-than-reasonable $299.99. A check brush up in terms of specs:

  • 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor
  • 8.9″ 1024 x 600 WSVGA widescreen display
  • 4GB solid state drive
  • Linux OS
  • Integrated WiFi
  • 3 USB 2.0 ports
  • Weighs 2.2 lbs and measures 1.3″ thin

For $300 and change after taxes, you really can’t go wrong with this puppy.
