More Low-cost PCs

Here is an announcement from a Korean hardware manufacturer of a low-cost, $200-300 PC, although it looks to me more like a thin-client play than a PC play. I'm not a big thin-client fan. I've yet to see a thin client system perform that well, and yet to see a broad array of applications (especially educational software apps) perform well in thin client systems. Still, the positioning seems to be towards the education market, in hopes of providing it a low-cost hardware alternative. And, as I've mentioned before in this blog, you'll see a lot more machines at the low-cost end of the market in the next five years.
