Well it's cheaper than the similarly specc'd eeePC (no surround sound or
802.11n but I'm not sure that's a major issue). Presume it saves money
on licensing - watch MS release 'Windows 7 Express' or something to
penetrate this emerging market.
What's interesting is the OS behind it
I actually trust Microsoft more than I trust Google (yes it's true - I
think Microsoft have paid their dues in all fairness while Google
stampedes along), so I'm not entirely comfortable with the gOS concept

'compatible' with Ubuntu or that gOS is actually a customised Ubuntu.

I wonder how it goes with sophisticated online Flash games for kids.
