Cheap Netbooks Under $200

Cheap Netbook Computers for Under $200

Netbook for under $200
Can you buy a netbook computer for under $200? Well, the answer is yes, but only just. You will find it very difficult to find a NEW netbook for under $200 but there are plenty of used or refurbished netbooks available. The problem with used netbooks is, of course, that they tend to be last year's models. So the used netbooks available for under $200 will have Windows XP or Windows 7 Starter software on them.

Apart from used netbooks there are also 'mini netbooks' available for well under $200.

The only NEW netbook computer I've been able to find for anywhere near $200 is an Acer Aspire One for $240

Asus Kids Netbooks?

Netbooks for Kids for Christmas?

Asus Disney Netpal Netbook for Kids

Netbooks are better for kids than tablets. They are more robust and they have a lid that protects the screen. Netbooks designed specifically for kids are even better and make a great Christmas gift.

With the Disney Netpal, Asus have made computing fun and safe for kids.

It comes in two colors - Princess Pink and Magic Blue
and is a lot more inviting for kids than a plain black box. It is also equipped with safety features to prevent them accessing stuff on the Internet that they shouldn't.

Asus has also signed a contract with Disney to make lots of Disney content available via the Netpal. You also don't need to be a computer geek to use it as the browser and email have already been set up with the necessary parental controls to make using the Internet safe and easy.

It also features a range of applications designed just for kids — Disney Pix for editing/creating photos, Disney Mix, and Radio Disney with live streaming and a Mickey-shaped webcam lens.

The design is durable and child-friendly and is reinforced with a spill-proof keyboard, plus ShockShield Data Protection to prevent data loss in the event of impacts.

The battery cannot be removed by kids thus avoiding any electrical danger.

The batteries stay charged for up to 5 hours.

Disney Desktop

Disney Desktop lets your children dress their desktops with themes from Cars, Club Penguin, Disney Classic Characters, Disney Fairies, Disney Princess, Vintage Mickey Mouse, Toy Story, WALL-E, Hannah Montana, and Jonas Brothers!

Disney Applications and Games

Disney Mix lets kids manage their media, Disney Pix edits/creates photos and Radio Disney provides live streaming. The Netpal also includes a memory game, driving game, and photo scrapbook.

Disney Pix

Disney Pix lets kids put their faces on dancing bodies and accessorize with glasses, hats and more before sharing with friends.

Durable, Kid-friendly Design

The reinforced mechanical design withstands significant abuse, and the spill-proof keyboard protects against liquid spills.
