Netbook Prices Dropping like a Rock

Netbook Prices Dropping like a Rock

With dozens and dozens of new netbook models coming out the market, it’s no wonder prices of earlier units have gone down significantly. Check out which ones are selling for a bargain.

Yesterday, I bought an MSI Wind U100 as a temporary replacement for my busted Compaq-Presario.

I was actually looking for the MSI Wind U90 model as it’s cheaper but it turns out every other netbook has dropped prices as well:

Asus Eee PC 701: Php11,300

Acer Aspire One: Php15,000 cash (Php15,900 for 6 month zero percent interest)


MSI Wind U90: Php16,900

MSI Wind U100: Php19,999 cash/straight (No OS but DOS with 160GB HDD upgrade)

Asus Eee PC 900: Php15,900 (20GB SSD, Linux)

Asus Eee PC 1000H: Php26,900 (6-cell battery, 1GB RAM, 80GB HDD, Windows XP)

Some of the prices are running on a promo (like the Wind) while others are on a cash or straight credit card basis. Stores like PC Corner, CompLink, etc. have these available on sale.

    nice nice. 20k for a wind. i don’t care if it has no OS. linux and 160GB HDD is nice!

    I’m considering buying a wind myself. But also waiting for the lenovo s10. Hirap mag decide.

    By the way, what happened to your compaq? I was also considering buying the same because it has a 12″ screen and is still light enough. I still find the 10″ a bit too small.

  7. jhay says:

    I agree with Nikko. Still waiting for the Lenovo IdeaPad. ;)

    Which netbook has the best webcam? I’ve tried Asus and Acer, but am not satisfied with those. :(

  9. Nikko says:

    @Liz. I think 1.3mp is a standard. Haven’t seen one with higher mp, or I just haven’t really noticed. You could always buy a USB webcam that has higher mp :)

    Good thing I did not go for that Compaq B1400 series. For its price then (~40k) plus another 10k to boot, got myself a decent desktop and a netbook.

  13. Men says:

    What best laptop can you suggest me to buy, or should i wait before christmas, to buy one?

  14. Nikko says:

    for laptop, depends on your budget. if it’s a netbook, at least wait for lenovo s10 to get out sometime this september.

  15. kouji says:

    wow. who would have thought that new laptop prices would sink so low? seems only recently that you couldn’t get anything for less than P40 or P60T.

  16. Men says:
