I just got a Craig Wireless 7" Android 4.0 netbook,
model CLP281x, 1GB RAM, and a 1.3GHZ ARM processor,
from eBay for $17. Probably saved about $80 dollars.

It must be overstock because it was new in the box.
It has USB slots, an Ethernet port and an HDMI port.
The screen is very nice, and it has a 5 hour battery.

The keyboard is not full size, but it still works OK,
and I can always easily plug in a full USB keyboard.
The mic and speakers are decent for such a small unit.
But, it has ports like a PC for headphone and mic jacks.

Everybody loves a tablet touch screen. Yet, this netbook
proves there is a usable alternative to a touch screen.
Unlike inaccurate PC touch pads, this netbook touch pad
moves the mouse pointer precisely, like a USB mouse does.

NOTE:  I've only had it for a day, so this is an early report.
So far, so good though.  And, it has other stuff I did not
go into, like 4GB internal flash memory, and an external slot
for a 32GB external sdcard...  And more!

Sounds like a great little netbook and at an even better price  8)

I quite like Android these days, ok it has it's limits but for what it can do it is pretty good at.

So yeah, nice bit of kit  :thumbsup:

The eBay listing said, "Craig 7 inch Wireless Netbook CLP281x Powered By Android 4.0"

Well, I just booted up the netbook and the boot splash screen says Android 4.1 ... Yay!

I love when that happens!   Once, I got a laptop on eBay that said 2GB of RAM.  

But, when I received it, it had 3GB of RAM.

Oh, and I should mention that on the price, I had to bargain back and forth, using the

"Make Offer" button.   It took a few offers and counter offers, before we made a deal.
