oqo model 2 much money!

This is now two larger tech blogs singing their praises over the oqo model 02. Hugo loves the thing even though he’s on his fourth. Now, also Dennis Rice from GottaBeMobile picked one up as well. I’m thinking I need to find one of these computers to play with because they seem quite possibly to be the end all in mobile computing. But both of these very intelligent chaps seems to have forgotten something people got up on many a soap box just about a year ago over. Price. The oqo model 02 starts at 1,499 and the version which natively has Vista sets the poor buyer back nearly two grand at 1,849!

Now i’m not out to get on the oqo model 02 and say its a sub par computing machine. The idea for this post actually came when I saw a picture of the oqo on John Chow‘s site. It seems that little device sure its getting lots of exposure. Lots of exposure and great reviews from people who know their mobile computing devices. Now my only question is will oqo make their model 02 more affordable or do i just have to keep saving my money?

    This is something I highlighted to Hugo. He forgot to mention that its double the cost of many UMPCs. You have to be UMPC focused and have a very high value on your time to be going for one of these devices. I love them but they are way out of reach for me. I can not justify what would be 2K Euro after taxes on it.
