Hardware, Embedded Systems "Those flash-based laptops we're all dreaming about may be a lot cheaper than we expected. Asus just announced their plans to make five budget, solid state laptops this year priced from USD 199 to USD 549. Each machine will have a 7-inch display, and depending on the model it'll have a flash drive ranging from 1GB to 40GB. The lappies are expected later this year."

Yes, even with a 640x480 resolution, the dots-per-inch on a 7 inch (5.6"x4.2") screen would be more packed than 1024x768 on a 12 inch (9.6"x7.2") screen.
