When the Kindle was expensive

Kindle, schmindle...I've got your $350 e-book reader right here, article from when a Kindle cost $350. It has a good point, a $350 netbook gave you rather more for your money than the Kindle II did.

After all, for $359, you get a color screen, Wi-Fi and full-function Web browsing, video playback, 60GB of storage, and a reasonably usable keyboard.
Oh wait, you don't get any of that stuff. No, that's what $350 can get you if invested in even a low-end Netbook, such as the new 10-inch Acer Aspire One.

Actually it's a little unbelievable that I was so excited about ereaders that I bought the Kindle 3, the Kindle 2, and the Kindle 1! And the Kindle 1 couldn't even go online here in Europe!
