Sylvania's g netbook MESO

Light bulb, TV and consumer electronics maker Sylvania may be getting into the netbook business, as it announced today it will soon sell its 8.9-inch g netbook MESO. Preliminary specs for the notebook include Intel's Atom CPU running at 1.6GHz and an 80GB hard drive with either Windows XP Home or Ubuntu Netbook Remix operating systems. A low weight of 2.2lbs, a multi-card reader and a built-in webcam will finish off the netbook's class-competitive feature set.

Sylvania's name has previously graced the VIA C7-based Sylvania g netbook that was offered with gOS. Sylvania, which currently distributes its consumer electronics products via Wal-Mart, promises to make the g netbook MESO available in white, yellow and pink.

While an exact release date is unknown, the pricing of the base netbook is expected to cost about $300 or $400, in line with other entry-level notebooks. [via Rossrubin.com]

    because no one wants to pay for expensive light bulbs (with better performance characteristics/quality)...simple commodity pricing economics

    I receive mine in tuesday

    I bought one at Amazon, and it will arrive soon. It will come with Ubuntu Remix OS, and it will be my first non-Apple computer in 20 years. why? Because Apple is clear that doesn't care about low end netbooks for everyday online tasks... so... we need to go someplace else.
