ASUS EEE $199 Laptop not in US

Word comes in that the once inexpensive laptop is now about the same price as a used one...

ASUS $199 Laptop. Now up to $399, and the cheaper model will not be available

Is it just me, or did the hope of an inexpensive laptop go out the window? Don't get me wrong, I know $299 and $399 is cheaper then usual, but for that price, I could buy a full fledged used laptop, with 25 GBs of HDD space...

Maybe something else will come up. I liked these for the sheer fact that I am a writer and wanted something to work on, when I can't lug my thinkpad with me...

Oh well...
