The year of the low cost Linux machines

Is this a poor geeks dream or what? It is like I have been dreaming for a small low cost laptop for years and then all at once every one wants in on this market.

Acer is looking to enter the low cost laptop market with 8″ – 9″ designs. Gigabyte also announced that it will produce what seams to be a low cost laptop due in June. Linux is not mentioned in either case but given the success of the other low cost machines with Linux I would say it is reasonable to assume that there would be a Linux version of both laptops.

In other news, Everex plans to expand their cloudbook line with some nifty ideas.
