VAIO P-as-in-Pricey

Here's a netbook inspired by the not-a-netbook Sony VAIO P, which costs so much ($900) that it seems to deserve a knockoff. Enter Malata's not-so-sexy PC-98905, a device that offers the same mini-PC design (complete with trackpoint) without the VAIO P's price tag.

Also worthy of mention is the Malata A805, another take on the VAIO P, which adds a touchscreen--and, at $600, leaves an extra $300 in your pocket. (Let's hope that $300 wasn't cut out of the company's safety and build-quality budget. Try this one at your own risk.)
