post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Newest revision comes at the end of April. Not quite Atom yet but it looks very nice and Asus wants to jump the gun before all the posers release theirs

Another thing I didn't know was the 20gb version

I don't get what is so good about the EEE PC

It costs £300 just for the 2GB SSD version with 1GB RAM

I could get a dual core lappy with 2GB + 160GB HDD for £400. With a 17" screen.

I know these are aimed in the lower price market, but just because they are a low price it doesn't mean they offer bang for buck. Can anyone tell me why these are so famous? I seem to be missing the point i think

Size matters my friend, the smaller electronics become the more they charge for them initially. Portability is the factor for these devices, not power, and having to cram all sorts of electronics within a small chassis is more costly than having loads of room to work with.
Im not too sure either if its worth it for what you get, but then again i like it!

Yep, I'm really wanting one of these babies!!!!!!!!!

The damn built in webcam just puts the cherry on top!

I'll get that thing and the first thing I'll do is load Bullet edition XP on it .

Sucks to be you then I guess, in Canada it costs £150 for the 2GB version and £200 for the 4GB...


I'm a bit disappointed by the 4GB flash too, but I guess it saves the hassle of buying one yourself. I just hope it doesn't take up the available card slot.

Is it just me or does anyone else find it weird that the Windows version comes with less storage space?

You'd think they'd use the larger drive space with Windows since presumably, it takes up more space than the Linux install would.

It must cost something to license Windows, and I guess they took the difference from the HDD space.

The entire point is that it doesnt have a 17" screen and high powered hardware. It's a tiny, dirt cheap laptop. Also, running linux would make it faster than a windows lappy that costs twice as much
It goes to eleven
