I expect this sort of epic fail from entrenched players in the IT industry but then to have a newcomer come along and produce Just Another Craptastic Netbook (albeit sans the Windows Tax) it is truly disheartening.
These people had the opportunity to come into the market with zero baggage and offer up something different. A low cost, ARM + Flash based device might have been quite interesting, and if cheap enough would probably have flown off the shelves.
Instead, what do they do? They release a "me too", not cheap, not interesting, run of the mill Netbook whose only differentiator is that you don't have to pay for Windows.
Not that that seems to be reflected in the ticket price mind you.
PS. What is with all the 503 errors emanating from the Vulture Central servers today? Is the Amstrad you have running in the closet overheating perhaps? Maybe somebody could open the door a touch and let some air in for the poor dear.
