Scoble: I assumed that OEMs would be able to get the price down closer to $500 than $1,000. At $1,000 you can buy a high-powered laptop. These things just won’t do well until they drop in price.

Price it lower and make it sell better? Is that not the problem with XBox 360 too? I assume that Microsoft is still making a loss on every unit it sells of the XBox, which is a damn good product anyway. But for something new like the UMPC, will a price cut of 50%, which is a big figure to write off, be sustainable in the long run?
