One of the things I've noticed that seems to affect the price is the crap software they bundle with them, Norton AV, Works, etc. You would think on a refurb that they would sell just the netbook and either scrap the software or put it up as an "option", not force us to take it.
I could be wrong tho. But the more expensive ones almost always have extra bloated software that I wouldn't want anyways.
I also see a lot of "perfect" configurations, except they are PINK! I'm a guy, even tho I am confortable with my sexuality, I really don't want someone wondering why I carry around a pink laptop....
I want any color but pink, however there always seems to be a pink 16-32gb with 1.3 cam and BT
for a semi-reasonable price, but in PINK!!! Bleah
