Another company has got in on the action with an inexpensive Linux sub notebook designed to rival the Asus Eee PC.
Unlike the rest of the competitors, this one may actually have a chance of becoming popular becuase of the price.
A single Bestlink Alpha 400 will cost you either $219 for the 1GB model or $250 for the 2GB model, which is very affordable, and if you want to buy in bulk, say for a school or an office they will only cost you $180 each.
The Bestlink Alpha 400 features a 400MHZ Xburst CPu, 128MB of Ram and a choice of either 1GB or 2GB of flash storage.
It features a 7 inch display with a resolution of 800 x 400 and will run Linux or Windows CE.
There is also the option to expand the storage via an SD card, unfortunately there is no WiFi built in but it does come with a WiFi dongle.
Here’s the specs
- Processor: XBurst 400 MHz 32-bit CPU
- Display Terminal: 7 Digital Panel 800 X 480 true-color
- RAM: 128M
- Storage: 1GB or 2GB Max. NAND Flash
- USB port: 3 ports
- External Storage: SD card rabbit

- Network access: ADSL, Wi-Fi, CDMA, GPRS (optional)

The specs aren’t that impressive, but the price is cheap, I am sure the Bestlink Alpha 400 is going to be a hit simply because of the price.
