That’s what Barbara Krasoff alludes at end of an Information Week overview based on this finishing line:
"..its $1,999 price tag means most buyers will have to choose between the FlipStart and an ultra-light notebook like the Fujitsu Lifebook Q or Sony Vaio TX. I know which I’d choose."
Definitely a valid point as the FlipStart price was worrisome to me when I first heard what two-grand gets you. It’s a fine line between gaining mobility and maintaining a comparable price. There needs to be some type of functionality or usage scenario you gain with one device over another if they’re priced similarly and I think that’s where Barbara was going here. Any Vulcan FlipStart owners want to chime in on their investment?
