Personally, I don't think that they will lose the cool factor. I think
that anyone who's ever wanted a portable, affordable, laptop, will get
one. Imagine a machine which is so inexpensive, it cost less than just
a copy of Microsoft Office or Windows Vista, and yet has all the
software you need for normal day to day PC usage, plus even a webcam...
