Wal-Mart has been selling the Everex Cloudbook for $299 for a few weeks now. And that’s made the $399 – $449 Sylvania G Netbook look horribly overpriced, because the G is basically just a rebranded version of the Cloudbook 1200V. But now it looks like Sylvania is catching up with the big W, because today you can pick up a Sylvania G Netbook for about $299 from several retailers, including Amazon and J&R.
The Sylvania G Netbook features a 1.2GHz VIA C7-M CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 30GB hard drive, a 7-inch, 800 x 480 pixel display, a webcam, WiFi, and a 4-in-1 card reader. It’s not exactly going to challenge the Eee PC 1000 in terms of performance anytime son. But for $299, it’s not a bad little machine. If you can deal with the gOS Linux operating system.

I know people have complained about this like a 1000 times but the disparity between costs in the US to costs in the UK is really bad. This might be selling for $299 in the US at Wall Mart but does that translate to £299 UK? I hope not!
One good thing about this is that Apple are actually selling the iPhone for £99 in the UK which is the right price for $199 in the USA. Well done Apple…
