Acer Aspire One

AT&T is offering subsidized netbooks to customers who are willing to sign up for a two-year data contract, at select stores in Atlanta and Philadelphia. The netbooks on offer are the Acer Aspire One, the Dell Inspiron Mini 9/Mini 12, and the LG Xenia.

Prices range from $49.99 to $249.99 with the purchase of an AT&T Internet at Home and On the Go plan, which pairs AT&T DataConnect with AT&T Fast Access DSL, providing 200MB of 3G data, unlimited use of AT&T Wi-Fi hotspots, and a home broadband service for $59.95/month.

For those of you who already have DSL at home, you’ll still be able to get prices of between $99.99 to $349.99 when you sign up for a two-year DataConnect plan – a 200MB plan for $40/month or a 5GB plan for $60/month.

Also available is the ultraportable Lenovo X200, with an MSRP of $1535, which can be had for $749.99 with the Internet at Home and On the Go plan or $849.99 with a two-year DataConnect plan.
