THIS IS BIG, BIG NEWS. WHY AM I SAYING THAT?


10-INCH SCREEN IS ENOUGH.

If you can read a page off a printer or typewriter, then you can use a 10-inch screen full time with no problem. A 10-inch mini-laptop or netbook should be able to replace your regular or current PC at a greatly reduced price -- a depression-era computer.

  1. The NBPC722 is more exciting to me, because with specs just slightly higher than the Alpha-400, it seems like the most likely contender for the first mass-market or "blister-pack" PC at CVS, Rite-Aid and the like. I'd probably get one just to keep in my glove compartment for emergency SSH use, assuming the batteries wouldn't blow up. (Yes, Virginia, professional nerds sometimes encounter emergency situations that require SSH.)

    But the 12" model seems like it could replace my dying 12" Thinkpad if the price is right. Couldn't use these 10" models as my main machine because there are a few programs that I use that need more than 600 pixels vertically, but as a second or travel laptop, absolutely. Most users who are buying a PC to use websites, instant messaging and office software would absolutely be fine with that resolution.

    Where did you get (or how are you deriving) that $240 retail price figure? I've read elsewhere, maybe in an earlier post here, that these will be $220 in wholesale quantities. Do retailers really only mark up commodity consumer electronics by 10 percent?

  2. Chinese-language websites have been reporting that Coby would sell the COBY 10-incher for $240 apiece and multiples for $220. The $220 price is really not the same as wholesale.

    A much lower (truly wholesale) price probably would require 500 or 1000 units at least.

    Sorry for the confusion, my fault. Thanks for comments.
