Default Cheap Windows CE Netbook - 04-17-2010, 12:44 PM

Ok, so if you have been shopping around you have seen those super cheap chinese 7" netbooks with the Windows CE OS at around 50 bucks.

Anyone picked one up and not had it set fire to their home?

Can you link me to one being offered for fifty bucks? I've seen several at around the $100 mark but it's a little too steep for me, just for experimentation. I may be able to justify it to myself at fifty though.

Plenty on eBay!

O.K. perhaps not quite as cheap as that, but not far off.

You will have to wait for it to be shipped from China though!

I thought perhaps you were talking about the Cherrypal Africa, which does not interest me much.

I'm seriously considering the Cherrypal Asia for $99 with Android 1.6, though. It amazes me you can buy a 7" computer for that sort of price when I consider what the 286 I built with my dad cost and what he then threw down for a 386 running at a shocking 66 megahertz.

ETA: Ouch. This company sounds like it has some issues. Maybe not the people to get excited about.
