Golden Delicious still sell the Letux 400 netbook for 125 euro:

Unfortunately, the original batteries are unusable, so you would have to find
a suitable replacement - suggestions welcome! Also, you would need to find a
way to put a modern version of Linux on it, though I feel that something more
lightweight would be better on that kind of hardware.

I noticed that someone else also mentioned some systems from Dragonbox,
though they are quite a bit more expensive than either a "new old stock" or
second hand netbook. I don't know if it's possible to use all the hardware
without a lot of non-free firmware on some of those devices, so that might
also be a consideration.
