Shuttle, maker of compact kit computers, announced a $199 Linux-based PC and a $99 barebones kit at CES. Engadget is running a brief piece on the new computers; exact specifications aren't available yet, but at this price, thin clients, backup/file servers, Internet kiosks, and classroom PCs all come to mind. As far as I'm concerned, the parade of commodity PCs available at rock bottom prices suited for basic connectivity and productivity tasks can just keep on coming. Whether in laptop or slick-looking desktop form, 1:1 is going to happen for a lot of us sooner than later if these are harbingers of things to come.
