Default Another Attempt at a Low Cost Netbook

"The netbook market has more or less dried up; the little things might still be useful for light computing, but they’ve been clobbered by tablets as the go-to device for quick email and web browsing. Could it be that they’re just not cheap enough? Asus might be looking to fix that."

A netbook for $200?  If that concept sounds familiar, that is probably because the initial targeted price for the infamous eee PC was supposed to be $200.  It looks like several years later, Asus is making another attempt.  The truth of the matter is that while the initial launch of the netbook had prices a little higher than expected, you can often find netbooks at the $200 price point these days.  They may not be overly powerful, but I wonder if this Chrome netbook will be any different.  I do not imagine that it will be any different, and with the interest in tablets over netbooks these days, it will find limited sales.  Anyone else think this might be a bit of "too little, too late"?
