LXer: Low End Linux Netbook Prices Continue To Drop

Published at LXer:

Last month I wrote about netbooks powered by the MIPS processor, originally developed by SGI. I also pointed out that the price for the Belco Alpha 400 had dropped to $149 last December and January. That is now the regular price for the lowest of low end Linux netbooks at Last week they had a special and the price dropped to $139.

Believe it or not that doesn't sound like a bargain right now. A number of vendors are closing out the much more capable Asus EeePC 900A. is offering it for $149, the same price as the Belco Alpha 400, and they're thowing in an mp3 player.
