Reader John T. passes along this deal on the Acer C7 Google Chrombook.
It’s a very basic stripped down netbook that costs $199. This seems a fair review.
But they give you (12) Gogo wireless internet day passes which sell for $14 each.
So if you would be buying inflight internet day passes anway, you’re effectively buying this netbook for $31 plus shipping. Surely it has to be worth that price, or could be eBayed for more.
Or it might be a good deal if you were keeping the Acer C7 and unloading the gogo wireless internet pass codes. Thus this deal may be useful to some.
And of course my Staples sells Google Play gift cards. So one could earn 5 points per dollar buying this to boot..!
Update: Readers in the comments suggest it may not be possible touse Google Play gift cards to buy hardware. It was a bit of a throwaway idea on my part at the end of the post and not something I’ve investigated. Also some question raised about whether you can actually sell the inflight wireless passes or not. Love my commenters!!
