Sub-$200 laptops easier said than sold

In a belated followup to my post last month on the EEE’s price creep, Engadget reports on possible delays for the EEE and a larger-screened Linux-based laptop from Swedish vendor┬áMedison. Donald Melanson blogs, “The company also said that the laptop will not be its primary source of income, with it instead expecting to make most of its money from advertisements on its website (mainly from accessory-makers and the like).” That strategy didn’t work very well for when it launched, almost driving it into bankruptcy.
