Memo To Sony: J&R Notes

There weren't any new netbooks in. But I did notice two things of significance.

First, that Sylvania G 7" netbook running a Linux variant has dropped to $297.88.

It has a VIA CPU, a seven-inch color screen, and a 30GB hard drive. Plus WiFi and a whole bunch of ports.

Second, the Sony Reader has dropped to $270.00.

It has an ARM CPU, a six-inch grayscale screen, less than a GB of memory, and no WiFi.

Is one of these priced too low? Or is one of them (whisper: Sony Reader) priced too high?
