The WSJ reports that HP might sell notebook computers as a subscription.
“For example, Taiwanese carrier Far EasTone Communications Ltd. sells the EEE PC from Asustek Computer Inc. for $29 with a two-year contract, rather than the usual price of $429.
Hewlett-Packard says the surging interest in netbooks, stripped-down computers that offer basic applications and Web browsing, is driving the move. With the economy fading and lots of high-speed cellphone networks available, the world’s largest computer seller by revenue sees bundling as a way to move more of its computers into customers’ homes.”
It would be interesting to pay $30 a year for a notebook computer and get wireless broadband access, support, backup and other amenities for one fee.
