ASUS Eee PC on Newegg

ASUS’ miniature notebook, the Eee PC, has now been officially launched and is available on - a day before the originally expected release date. The 4G model on Newegg has dimensions of 8.9” x 6.5” x 1.4” and weighs just two pounds, featuring an Intel Celeron M ULV 900MHz processor, a 4GB solid state hard drive, 512MB DDR2 RAM, 802.11g wireless networking, three USB ports and a 7” 800x480 screen. The OS shipped with the Eee PC is a modified version of Xandros Linux, optimised by ASUS, with a battery that is expected to last about 3.5 hours between charges. Although it was rumoured the Eee PC could go on sale for as little as $199, Newegg has the notebook listed at $399, available here, plus $10.03 for shipping.Source: DailyTech

While I think the price is horrible, I do think it's cool that this is probably the first Linux-powered laptop that people actually have a reason to order (once the price drops a bit!).

Get this laptop instead of the EeePC. For $200 bucks more, you are getting a hella of a laptop more than that:
Not bad -- finally, a Vaio that's somewhat affordable. :p

Not to mention that Wal-mart's now selling a halfway decent Acer laptop for $348 now: [LINK]

Wow, we Brits are only getting ripped off by $57... that's about $13 less that the US price once you allow for VAT (VAT at 17.5% on a $400 item is $70)!!! Admittedly I don't know how much tax is on the US model, so we might still be paying more to ASUS.
