Is the Eee PC too big for you? Would you rather have a 1.5 pound PC capable of running Windows XP or Vista Business with integrated WiFi, Bluetooth, and a 5.6 inch 1024 x 600 pixel screen?

FlipStart
has cut the price of its tiny laptop by more than half. At $1500, the FlipStart was kind of cool to look at, but a bit pricey for a keyboard that you'd be hard pressed to touch-type on. But at $699, the FlipStart looks a bit more attractive. Not only does it have a higher resolution (yet smaller) screen than the Eee PC, it packs a 30GB shock-mounted hard drive and a Pentium M 1.1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. Pound for pound, you get a lot more power out of a FlipStart than an Eee PC.

Of course, I paid less than $699 for my primary PC. And I probably wouldn't have picked up my Eee if it were priced higher than $400. But I can see this price drop keeping FlipStart in the game (if they were already in it) while the competition mounts from companies like Everex, E-Lead and Acer.
