"While PCs from eMachines Inc. and others now sell for less than $400, ZDNN has reviewed documents for new, more eye-pleasing designs aimed at even lower price levels. Some analysts think that the availability of these lower-cost models is not far off."

"One of the first PC makers to step up to the plate will be Tatung. The company is developing multi-hued, low-cost consumer PCs that will start at about $299, according to documents reviewed by ZDNN."

"But a stripped-down version of the same PC will be available for as low as $200. This box won't have a CD-ROM, will use Linux in place of Windows 98, and is based on a Cyrix chip."
