I have both a netbook and a tablet. If I had to choose between the two, I'd take my netbook in a heartbeat.
I think you need to actually look at the prices of systems and talk to some students. If you go to bestbuy.com, they only have 6 laptops that are less than $400. Even then, a couple of those are $399.99, so they will actually cost well over $400 at the register.

Those 6 systems, are the worse ones that Bestbuy,.com sells. You are talking about small screens, low memory, small HDs, bad graphics, and slow processors. All put together in a cheap package.

THis is not something that the average student is going to want.
