Sure enough, it’s finally for sale here in the US. The flagship 4GB model with half a gig of RAM, a 900MHz processor, and b/g wifi will run you $400. Honestly, that’s pretty much a jack, I mean Wal-Mart right now is selling a laptop with a 1.5GHz processor, half a gig of RAM, 60GB of hard drive space, and a 15.4” screen tack on a DVD burner, the same wifi as the Eee, and Vista Home and that makes the Wal-Mart PC not only a better performer, but $2 cheaper.
Sure, if it was really rugged, or if it looked really cool, it might be worth it. But anyone looking at a photo set of the laptop can see its fairly ugly, and there have been reports of this thing feeling a little like a milk jug running computer hardware. So why all the hubbub for an overpriced hunk of junk?
