Welcome to the mainstream: subnotebook from Sylvania

black.jpg

Sylvania's g netbook MESO is an Intel Atom-brained 9" subnote with an 80GB hard drive, weighing in at 2.2 pounds and running XP or Ubuntu Netbook Remix. Sylvania's a Wal-Mart staple, but there's no plans for it to hit the megabox. The whiff of mainstream success can't be far off for the new category.

It'll come in white, yellow and pink, and hopefully cost under $500.

Update: Fixed some mistakes and dumb assumptions of mine. Thanks, Beth!
