Chie Netbook Makes Debut in U.K. As Cheapest Netbook Yet

image003The Chie Netbook has made its debut in the U.K. after being the best selling and cheapest netbook in Asia. Retailing for £99 ($142.70 USD) its even cheap in comparison to the $199 Fidelity Netbook we wrote about last year. Currently available for pre-order, it will officially launch in the U.K. on January 23rd. The Chie is actually pretty stylish-looking with a 7” high-clarity screen, 4 hours of battery life, built in speakers, an SD slot and two USB ports to add extra storage.
