Archos 10 Ubuntu with 500GB hard disk and 2GB RAM released!

Is Archos planning to be the worlds best brand for high-end Ubuntu powered netbooks? What about the recently announced Archos 10S that is super slim, lighter and nicer because of its Magnesium case design and that has a better dimentionned keyboard, will they release a Ubuntu version of it with a 500GB hard drive, 2GB ram and Ubuntu 9.04 as well? How much more would that cost compared to the announced Windows XP 160GB and 1GB RAM version?

Based on the pricing from this first French retailer to commercialise this new product, the Archos 10 Ubuntu with 6-cell, 500GB and 2GB RAM, costs “only” 46€ more than the Windows XP, 160GB and 1GB RAM version (consider in the EU there is a 20% VAT tax on all products, thus consider that the US pricing premium for Archos Ubuntu netbooks can probably be below 50 US dollars!! US pricing and availabillity of Archos Ubuntu netbooks has not been officially announced yet though): Here is Surcouf’s pricing for the 6-cell Windows XP version: 329€ (consider the Windows XP version of the Archos 10 has been sold for months and the Ubuntu version has only just been released by Archos right now for the first time)
