Asus Rumored To Have Sub-$250 Chrome OS / Android 3.0 Netbook On Deck
The netbook is reportedly on track to sell for just $200 to $250, with Intel inside and one of two operating systems: Android 3.0 or Chrome OS. It's set to be marketed towards consumers who only need to handle basic Office tasks and surf the Web, and for just $200, we suspect it'll sell quite well. Linux-based netbooks never really gained traction, but Google has a name brand that people trust. It'll be very interesting to see if Microsoft will be able to counter this in any meaningful way. In fact, we're still waiting for Microsoft to create a reasonable tablet OS! Tick, tock!
