Great! I was wondering if the BIOS update has come out for the Celeron to run at full speed?

Also the store has 2GH and 4GB Surf models in... What's the difference between Surf and the Non-Surf model in the 4GB class?

Still handing out REP like candy if you're answer a good ones

EDIT: NVM Surf sucks... No camera and less battery life... NOT COOL

Well.

No Asus have not yet released an official BIOS to get the CPU back up to 900Mhz. There is an older BIOS that lets you run at 900Mhz. However that BIOS was found to be unstable and cause some users problem with there LCD screens. Thus they took it off the Asus site. Now I should think Asus will provide a BIOS soon, im just not sure when. However there are overlocking solutions via software that will allow you to obtain 900Mhz without much of a temp increase due to the fact the chip/EEE was designed to run at those speeds anyway.

As for the difference between the Surf...Im not 100% sure. In both models the SSD is soldered onto the mainboard. The difference is the Surf has a lesser battery life of 2H 45M and the non surf has a batter life of 3H 30M

However you can probably find ALOT of info here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asus_eee

This is what I was looking at http://wiki.eeeuser.com/eee_pc_701#models

And it says that they MIGHT not have a cover to remove to add more RAM... Also less battery life and no web cam

Good spot. Yes I have heard that there may not be any external access. Personally I do not see why you would want to go for the Surf...How much cheaper is it ?

Well the store only has the 2GB Surf and 4GB Surf in stock but he says he can order other models.

I'm looking at the 4GB Non-Surf but if his price is too much I might look at NCIX.

I simply can't find a store that has even heard of them... I'm not a fan of Ebay if I can get it at a store... We need to support our local computer stores because unfortunately they are getting killed by Futurshop, Bestbuy and Dell. Also I prefer to social part instead of communication via e-mail.
