    A laptop for only 100.00! Wow. But why running 1.5, not 2.0?

    Well, i think for a "couch surfing device" it doesnt matter what android it is running right?

    Besides that, steve jobs wanted $499 for a similar device =)

    O'Neil really glad someone is taking Googlers seriously. Ill probablly buy one of these even though I don't need one, just to give the OS a chance.

    This will be perfect for my 15 yr. old who complains that our 4 yr. old Windows XP laptop is so ancient. Hope it comes out soon. Can't beat the price either.

    Note that he said "$100 to the distributor" traditionally the distributor will sell to the retailer who would double the price to the end consumer so it will probably have a retail "list" price of $200.00.

    Price is $98 to distributors, not $98 retail, but in any case blows away the iCrap.

    I'll buy it if not only to support, but I'm sure I'll get a ton of use out of it.

    Most of the wireless carriers have netbooks for $200 with a two year contract.

    yea, but this would be WITHOUT contract, cuz it has no mobile network on it (as far as i could read from the specs) so it would be WiFi only.

    and supporting the good OS is a good shot as well

    That's my fear, that it would be on a wireless carrier with a contract. Since it has built in WIFI, and if it was in the $100 - $200 range, and no carrier commitment, it would be a bargain.
