$499, what what what?

Wasn't the major point of ARM smartbooks being cheaper?
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Built-in 3G. In Aus, those 3g modems are at least $100, so that's gonna negate your cheaper processor right off the bat. (at least, I haven't seen builtin 3G in any other netbooks in that pricerange)
And I'd happily pay $499 for 10 hours of battery life. Now, if only they'd make a smartbook with a 13' screen... 10 is too small...
