Netbook prices: how low can they go? We asked Intel

'Don't expect a 10,000-rupee netbook any time soon'

Prices of Netbooks --those pared down notebook PCs with sub-10 inch screens and no DVD drive, mostly driven by the Atom chip-- are like 'Kansas City' in the lyrics of that famous song in the "Oklahoma" musical: "They've gone about as far as they can go" -- as far down, that is.
Intel's Vice President for the mobile platform business, "Mooly" Eden, in Bangalore, Thursday, told a media briefing that Net book prices were unlikely to fall much more beyond today's bottom prices of around $ 250 equivalent. In other words, they will cost around Rs 15,000 in India. Eden suggested that the Intel elements of the Net book formed only a small part of the total bill of materials -- batteries took away a big chunk of the cost -- so the company could do only so much to drive down prices.
However, challenged to create a reference design that could end up as a product for India, below the popular the perceived lay consumer's 'lakshman rekha' of Rs 10,000, Eden set his India-based engineers on the job.
Meanwhile the company has moved beyond Atom fuelled notebooks to ultra thin notebooks, with ultra low voltage processors under the belt. Thin and ( ultra) light is in... but get set to pay a premium for that sleek-n-sexy look: thin computing will add another $ 50-100 to the asking price of the best netbooks. / Aug 30 2009

September 1 update: Digitimes says Asustek Computer plans to launch two new ultra-thin notebooks using Intel's upcoming 45nm Celeron 743 and SU2300 CPUs on September 7. Both target the entry-level market. Micro-Star International (MSI) and Acer will follow suit to announce their new ultra-thin notebooks soon after, the sources noted.

  "(Personal Computers) Ordered this for school to do hoemrowk on the go and also be able to use the internet and everything else a windows computer can do. So far so good! Pros: - Sturdy build to it does not feel cheap when carrying it around and using it - Keyboard is surprisingly big. The keys you use to type are just as big as a laptops keys meaning I can type just as fast as I can on my laptop and even my desktop. - The screen is really bright and crisp. Beats out my laptops 15.4 screen for clarity! - Windows 7 Starter runs much better than previous netbooks which had Windows XP. This thing boots fast and launches everything in no time! - Battery life is amazing! Even with the screen on full brightness I have been watching flash videos and using mozilla firefox for hours. Cons: - Like ALL big name computers it comes loaded with a bunch of crap you don't need. I quickly deleted norton antivirus and installed the free and powerful microsoft security essentials. Which I might add runs nicely on this netbook completed a virus scan in under 20 minutes. - The only con is the sound. Although I will be ordering a usb powered logitech z205 speaker which clips to the top of the netbook and provides very good sound as compared to any laptops/netbooks onboard speakers. "
