It appears the popularity of netbooks is having an effect on low end computer prices. DigiTimes reports that computer vendors in Taiwan are cutting prices of full sized laptops to make them more competitive with netbooks.

Now, we’re not talking about high end gaming rigs here. We’re talking about computers with Celeron or Pentium Dual-Core chips. But companies including HP, Acer and Dell are reducing prices of 12 to 16 inch laptops to help move those machines at a time when the economy is down and low cost netbooks are selling like hotcakes.
