The Acer Aspire one netbook is priced at just $99, but only for customers who sign up for a two-year contract with AT&T, which is providing the wireless data connection for the netbook's integrated 3G connnection. AT&T's wireless data plans start at $60 per month, which means consumers will pay little up front, but $1,440 over the two-year contract.

The offer is available in 4,400 RadioShack company-operated stores through Dec. 24, RadioShack said.
