Compaq Mini 110 for 99c

Best Buy and Sprint sought to lure customers into shops today with a special promo for the Compaq Mini 110. Normally $390, the netbook now costs 99 cents when tied to a two-year data plan and bought through one of Best Buy's stores. Carriers like AT&T and Verizon currently offer only partial discounts, typically offering their own systems for $200 on the same terms. No mention is made of whether or not the deal will expire, though it should need a monthly $60 plan that allows 5GB of data per month.

The Mini 110 on offer, the 1040DX, is a direct equivalent to the HP Mini 110 XP Edition and comes with the older Microsoft OS as well as a 10-inch display, a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard disk. [via jkOnTheRun]
