Blockbuster will add $299 Archos 10 netbook computers to its product offerings at 1,000 of its U.S. locations.
The Archos netbooks will include an embedded link to Blockbuster's Web site.
At less than 2.8 pounds each, the mini laptops feature a 10-inch ultra-bright LED screen, 1GB RAM and a 160GB harddrive. They also come equipped with Windows XP and a built-in Web cam.
"Blockbuster strives to provide consumers with convenient access to media entertainment when and where they want it, said Joanne DeLorenzo, VP of product at Blockbuster. Enhancing our consumer electronics offerings with an affordably priced netbook that allows customers to access our online rental, retail and download services, whether they're at home or on the road, is a natural fit.
