wow i have to admit.. it is pretty cheap for a netbook!
No, it's still expensive, and there are other netbooks around with the same or better spec.
In fact, the Archos 10 is the cheapest Netbook with those specifications.
Just look at http://preissuchmachine.de
In fact the Archos 10 is about 40Ôé¼ cheaper than the similar Asus 1000H http://www.preissuchmaschine.de/in-Note ... 1000H.html
, Archos 10 is about 60Ôé¼ cheaper than the Samsung NC10 (similar appart from, the 6-cell battery option, but Archos has that option as well for much less than the 60Ôé¼ difference) http://www.preissuchmaschine.de/in-Note ... et-BT.html
, only the MSI Wind is at a pretty similar price just 10Ôé¼ more http://www.preissuchmaschine.de/in-Note ... 616XP.html
The official price difference between 3-cell and 6-cell model is $20 for the Archos 10 at Amazon.com in the USA, thus probably it's a lower price difference at the cheapest resellers.
The Archos 10 is about 100Ôé¼ cheaper than the new relatively similar Asus 1000HE which only has a 6-cell battery and a slightly optimized keyboard technology.
And the Archos 10S will come next month with some pretty modern Netbook features such as super slim and light 890 grams form factor with a chiclet keyboard and built-in HSDPA as well.
Saying that Archos does not play they Netbook cards right is simply RIDICULOUS. Just as most of the other things that CBers has to say.
