A Smartbook (computer) for less than $100

I was just over at Bill Mullins’ Weblog – Tech Thoughts to look over what he had posted this past week and noticed under the article Tech Thoughts Daily Net News – March 4, 2010 a news alert item titled

Would you buy Coby’s 7-inch smartbook for $85?

I did some backtracking of the links and discovered (see below Web Clip) that this smartbook (for internet access or cloud computing) is a for real deal and apparently will not to be available in the U.S., until this spring (which is right around the corner – I Think : )  You can preview a video description of the Coby Smartbook at engadget by clicking any of the links below.

Coby $85 smartbook
feels like a hundred bucks (hands-on)

Funny how our tune on smartbooks totally changes when one’s got an $85 price tag. We happened upon Coby’s booth at CeBIT this morning and of all the fairly cheap feeling laptops the company had on display it was its 7-inch NBPC722 smartbook that cozied right up to us. Okay, so it isn’t as thin or attractive as the $499 Lenovo’s Skylight, but again let us remind you that it costs about as much as a couple of new printer ink cartridges. Inside the little guy packs a 624MHz Marvell PXA303 processor, 2GB of flash storage and runs Windows CE which all should be good enough for some light Web browsing and e-mail writing.
