Call the timing what you will (we're calling it opportunistic), but that ultraportable with the stifling price tag that we first saw some 15 months ago
is finally available in the US of A. Make no mistake, this subnote isn't playing in the same pond as the Eee PC
, RazorBook 400
or any other low-cost lappie. Instead, the 1.2GHz Core 2 Duo ULV processor, 4GB of RAM, 8.9-inch display and snazzy enclosure are being aimed directly at those shopping for the X300 and / or MacBook Air. Sure, the built-in 1.3-megapixel camera and integrated WWAN is delightful, but the $3,000 sticker is still quite the stunner. So, the question beckons: anyone on the phone right now placing their order?
