Can't find any netbooks going on sale!

I've seen quite a few people on this board looking for netbooks on boxing day... but the question is, will they be going on sale? What do you think?

Should I bother waiting, or should I bite the bullet and buy it now? :O

the only "sale" i've seen so far is for the aspire one in the futureshop boxing day flyer, the specs don't look that great and I'm sure it could be had for that price in the new year, give that one a look

Outlook is pretty bad on netbooks, sadly. Staples is supposed to be having a decent sale ($299 for the AAO that Future Shop is selling for $350 on Boxing Day), but that's literally the only decent sale I've seen.

$299 at Staples for the Aspire One is probably the 3-cell right?
I might get it, and buy the 6-cell later.

The FS deal is terrible... it's the 8GB drive version.

Actually that's regular price. The one with the 8GB SSD is regularly priced at $350, it's the one with the 160GB HDD that's $400 regularly. Check it out:

Huge dissapointments in regards to netbooks. I've been waiting for about a month and a half for a decent sale on either the Acer or the Asus EEE, and aside from around the end of November when FS had $20 off the Acer I haven't seen anything.

Yup, anything that low will be 3-cell. You don't necessarily need a 6 or 9 cell, though unless you regularly find your self out of reach of a plug for more than 2-3 hours at a time. The higher capacity batteries tend to make the netbook too heavy for my liking.
