Remember back Asus first announced plans to develop a low cost ultraportable computer? Back when they said they could sell it for as low as $200? Yeah, that never really happened. Even the cheapest Eee PC units with just 2GB of storage and no webcam sell for $299. Now enter the Bestlink the Alpha 400 — a $250 computer from a budget electronics maker.
But the Alpha 400 does have a few tricks up its sleeve. In addition to Linux, it can run Windows CE. And there will be WiFi, CDMA, GPRS, and ADSL add-ons. Wait… there’s no built in WiFi? Nevermind.
