Melbourne-based boutique electronics company Kogan Technologies has reduced the price of its 10-inch Agora Netbook range with the basic model now $399, down from $499.

The Agora Netbook has a 1.6GHz processor, 1GB RAM, uses the the Linux-based gOS operating system and weighs only 1.2kg.

Also decreasing in price is the Agora Netbook PRO which started at $539 but now sells for $439.

The pro model includes 2GB of memory, Bluetooth and a six-cell battery.

Kogan claims to be the first company in Australia to offer a 10-inch netbook for less than $400.

The Agora range was launched back in March and both netbooks come with free gOS software pre-loaded.

Kogan Technologies founder Ruslan Kogan said: “We are huge believers in cloud computing and open source software. The reasons are simple: open source software is usually faster, better and has more features.”

Known for its timely marketing campaigns – one offering a television for the value of the federal government’s stimulus payment of $900 known as the 'KEVIN37 High Definition Stimulus' – Kogan is pitching the price reductions of the Agora Netbook range as “the perfect present for dad” this Father’s Day.

“At Kogan Technologies we want to offer the latest technology at the lowest possible price,” Kogan said. “We have established ourselves as a leader in this market and our buying power is increasing every day.

“Through our direct business model we can cut out the middle men and pass on these savings to our customers.”
