To be honest, getting a $299us computer isn't really all that remarkable to me. I live in Canada, where under $400cdn computers have been common for quite a while (months to over a year). And that translates to under $260us or so.
Course, that doesn't come with an operating system et al, but I just found it funny that you guys keep going on and on about how cheap it is, when you could probably get a cheaper system just north of your border.
