Just over two months after dropping the price of the Everex Cloudbook from $399 to $349, Walmart has given the little computer that barely could another price cut. Now you can pick up at Cloudbook for $299.

At $399, there was really little reason to choose a Cloudbook over an Eee PC 4G or other similarly priced computers. Sure, the Cloudbook has a 30GB hard drive which is more storage space than you’ll find on most low-end ultraportable laptops. But it also has a difficult to use touchpad and the hardware and operating system don’t really seem to be designed to play well together.

But for $299, things start to look a bit different. The only other machine you could pick up for that price would be an Eee PC 2G Surf which has just 2GB of storage and a lower capacity battery (or a Alpha 400/Razorbook 400 which is really in a class all its own).

In addition to a 30GB hard drive, the Cloudbook has a 1.2GHz VIA C7-M CPU, 512MB or RAM, 802.11b/g WiFi, a 4-in-1 card reader, and the gOS operating system, which is based on Ubuntu Linux.

  1. still not tempted to buy one. First off, it’s ugly as sin, and that stupid “trackpad” is a dealbreaker. People want this type of laptop for portability, not to be forced to carry around a mouse.

    It’s hard to believe, but this makes the bezel on the 701 downright attractive.
