32GB version takes over the $249 spot
If you're in the market for a new Google Nexus 7 tablet, the rumored price cuts have been confirmed. Google has dropped the price of the 16GB version of the tablet to $199.
The 16GB version of the tablet was originally priced at $249, but the new
is now occupying that price point. It's unclear what will happen to the 8GB version of the tablet, but speculation suggests that it could see its price decreased to a low $99. However, even if Google were to be that generous, it would likely just maintain that price point until inventories of the 8GB model are cleared.
The official announcement for the new pricing of the Nexus 7 tablet was to have come today, but Google was forced to cancel its press event due to
. There have been other indications that there may be a
3G version of the tablet launching soon as well
So far, Google hasn't offered a new time for its official event.

We've had ultralight (sub-3lb) notebooks for over two decades. In the 90's, Sony and IBM both had terrific ultralights that were also powerful, although lacking a optical drive which at the time was pretty important. Models such as the PCG-505G (Pentium MMX) up to the X30/X40 series (Pentium M) come to mind, but the 600-series predated that and was still under 4lbs. There were also some HP Omnibooks which were 2lbs!
And don't forget the Transmeta Crusoe saga of notebooks that reigned the ultralight segment for awhile, producing plenty of incredibly small notebooks in 2000.
IBM also offered the X-series with SSD drives beginning in the late 90's. I remember the 40GB PATA SSD's costing about $1000 though.
So I wouldn't say notebooks now are lighter or thinner than they used to be, because when you consider averages, most people buy a thick clunker from Walmart for $400 bucks that's more a DTR than a laptop, as had been the case for the market since it began. Ultralights are a niche segment, and although its growing, its still a small percentage of sales because more than half of notebooks sold are under $500.
