The $100 netbook used to be the Holy Grail of the PC industry, and while mainstream manufacturers haven’t touched the price point (broadband netbook deals don’t count) a select number of netbook makers have gone to $100 and below.
MenQ is the latest in the rush for the cheapest machine, and this time it costs a mere $80.
So what will 80 bucks get you? The EasyPC E790 has a 7-inch 800 x 480 display, Samsung ARM926EJ-S3C2450 CPU, and Windows CE. However, if you’re not a fan of CE, Google Android will be getting a firmware update this month. Word has it an ARM Cortex 8 CPU could show up later for $10-$20 more, but the extra speed will definitely be worth it.
You can’t buy directly from MenQ, and there’s no word on when this little guy will be available. In the mean time, check out Charbax’s video review of the MenQ EasyPCE790 below.
