Well then, look around how much do sub-12.1" subnotebooks cost; also, how important is a dual-core processor in a notebook? AFAIK, this was to be a small, highly portable and moderately durable notebook sufficiently powerful for taking notes and surfing, that is also much cheaper than other laptops of this size. It was never meant to be a stronger, dual-core machine with lots of storage at so cheap a price point - it would kill their own subnotebook-sales.
There is a reason there's a market for sub-12" subnotebooks even at their $2-3000 price range, and that's portability.
