The other day, I was giving some laptop buying advice to a colleague. The person could not believe how low prices have gotten! Some people still think that you have to pay $2000 for a laptop. When I explained that netbooks are in the $300-400 range, the person was astonished. Of course, you can get a standard laptop with a much larger screen for $400-500, so why settle for less, right?
It still amazes me when I think about how affordable laptops have become. Soon, households will have more environmentally-friendly laptops and fewer power-hungry desktop computers. I plan to purchase at least one laptop this holiday season for a family member. Let's see what kind of deals show up on Black Friday!
