Netbooks are low-cost laptops, and when they come with a wireless carrier’s subsidy, prices are reduced even more. Case in point: the Acer Aspire one is now available with AT&T’s 3G service for $80.

More about the Acer Aspire one
Like all netbooks, this device is primarily intended to be used to access the Internet, especially the Web. It was created to be an affordable, light-weight PC for students, as well as a secondary computer for anyone.
This version of the Aspire one runs Windows XP and has a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor, 1 GB of RAM, and a 120 GB internal hard drive.
It includes an 8.9-inch, 1024-by-600-pixel display, Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) and even WiMAX. Naturally, it can also connect to AT&T’s 3G network for high-speed cellular-wireless data access.
This subnotebook includes ports for Ethernet, VGA-out, and USB, as well as a memory card slot that supports SD, Memory Stick, and xD.
Its rechargeable three-cell battery is good for about 2.5 hours of use. An optional six-cell battery doubles that.
