i think these were 199 not too long ago...
Ya I got the 32gb one for 199 about 2 weeks ago. Quick impressions.. Not quite good enough to be a full tablet or a full laptop but the PERFECT compliment to both. They may drop even lower soon but I wouldn't mind paying the 279/249.
Microsoft office, remote desktop, and halo spartan assault (w/wired 360 controller) are worth it alone to me
