I’ve been researching mobile technology on and off for a while now – from laptops to netbooks, and smartphones to MIDs. It’s always difficult for me to decide on a product. I find as soon as you do, something better comes out the next day. So this has been a long process, and sadly started 6+ years ago. I’ve been on a desktop and smartphone only for most of the time.
During my trip to the east coast for the Thanksgiving holiday, last year, I was allowed to use my sister-in-laws 14″ Dell laptop. I fell in love with it. When I returned I started looking at Dell for my purchase, but found the complaints disheartening. I lost interest and forgot about my search.
I can’t remember what reignited my search, but I know I read somewhere about the Asus eee PC 1005ha Seashell. It seemed to be the best, fastest, and has the longest battery life (up to 10.5 hours). I researched for another few months, and saved one to my Amazon cart.
I compared pricing on TigerDirect, Newegg, Costco, Target, Frys, etc. Amazon.com beat them all. I was also able to purchase the following items below:
Netbook – $366.61: Asus eee PC 1005ha Seashell
2GB RAM – $29.46: Crucial 2GB 677Mhz Memory
Targus 10.2 Intersection Netbook Case – $28.52: Targus 10.2 Intersection Netbook Case
Cooling Pad – $29.99: Logitech Notebook Cooling Pad (N100)
Ultra Mini Hub – $10.25: Belkin USB 2.0 4-Port Ultra Mini Hub F5U407

Getting it all for under $500.00 – priceless!
I love my little netbook!
