Get in quick, Harvey Norman is doing a big sale between Saturday 26th and Tuesday 29th, and have advertised a HP Mini 110-1111TU for only $288! 
The flyer even points out it is NOT a misprint!


At that price, I may get two, one for me and one for the old man.

The only thing is that it has Windows XP, Not 7. But I guess that that is what you get when it is extremely cheap.

I think that I will get one.
I just found our mailer and it said that there was a limit of one per customer.

Nothing wrong with Windows XP, it's better than having Vista, and at that price, ya can't exactly complain.

It's an end of line model - you can hardly expect to get Windows7.

After reading the Dominion Post this morning I've decided that's the bargain of the day, I'm off soon to pick one up for somebody.

you are right - except that XP is almost 10 years old. ubuntu netbook remix is more fun to use! Cool

Went to Mt Wellington this morning - they had roughly 50 which went in 5 minutes. I'm downloading UNR as it is bloated with HPware.
