This month, Gadgetress’ summer intern Sandra Lee is posting a tech bargain, tip or fun fact every day at 4 p.m. Short, sweet and simple: It’s the SleeSpot!
Tired of those bulky laptops that are tiresome to carry around all day? Aliso Viejo-based Buy.com is offering an Asus EEE PC 900-W073 Netbook with an 8.9 inch screen in white for only $174.99. That’s a savings of $245 (hopefully no one paid full price for this). This nearly bare-bones model has no web cam, no Bluetooth and has a mere 512 MB RAM memory. But at least it does include Wi-Fi (G), 4 GB storage, and built-in memory card reader and right now, Buy.com is offering it brand new for just $5 more than a used model. ~ Sandra Lee
