ECS to offer $599 notebook?
According to this story over at DigiTimes, ECS may come out with a $599 notebook in the next couple of months. The notebook would feature a battery, so it's not a Desknote, making it more appropriate for a wider range of mobile users. Apparently, the notebook will use one of Transmeta's processors, so battery life should be good and performance at least adequate for most mainstream users.
A $600 price tag would undercut the cheapest notebooks available from Dell, Gateway, HP, and Apple, making the notebook particularly attractive to penny-pinching businesses and consumers.
