Price: $250

Availability: NowExtreme spec: The tiny price tag

Reasons to love it: Forget about [[xref:|$130 laptops from China|'World's Cheapest Laptop' Now Available]] that have to be bought in bulk, and the $220 GYY (which is available only in Europe for now). The cheapest machine for American tightwads has to be Asus's Eee PC 900HD. The computer typically sells for $250. But be warned: It's appropriately stripped down.

The 900HD features an Intel Celeron processor, 1GB of RAM (2GB if you buy the Linux model), a 160GB hard drive, 10GB of online storage, an 8.9-inch screen, and Wi-Fi connectivity. Weighing in at only 2.5 pounds, the 900HD is light on both your wallet and your carry-on bag. If you really like it, buy two--they're cheap!
